Default More SPRAGUE photos

Here are several more images of the SPRAGUE, taken after she was a permanently moored museum/showboat/restaurant at Vicksburg. The first two are engine room scenes, one showing a guide standing on a pitman. The third photo is the captain's room, occupied for many years by Capt. Eugene Hampton, who later was pilot on the DELTA QUEEN after the SPRAGUE was decommissioned and sold to Vicksburg for the sum of $1 in 1948. Notice the speaking tube to the pilothouse. The two "boxes" on the bulkhead (on either side of the door) housed dioramas with boat models in the River Hall of Fame, which occupied the cabin.
