Default Calliope Commemoratives

Inasmuch as Franz has noted that today in steamboat history marks the anniversary of Joshua Stoddard's 1855 patent issue for the steam pianna, here are a few vintage views to commemorate the event!

(1) Eva La Reane at the calliope of the Showboat COTTON BLOSSOM in 1930. (2) Calliope aboard the Streckfus excursion steamer WASHINGTON. (3) Travis Vasconcelos, "Wizard of the Whistles", and yours truly (at the keyboard) on steamboat race day aboard the Str. BELLE OF LOUISVILLE, May 4, 1988 - Photo by Marga Smith.
