Default Magnolia Belle

The Magnolia Belle was once known as the Border Star owned by Capt. Jack Trotter of Little Rock, Arkansas. The race spoken of on her page was on the Ohio River between the Border Star and the Delta Queen in 1971. I have documentation of a race between the Delta Queen and the Border Star taking place on the Arkansas River between the two boats. This race appears to have taken place in 1972 but in actuality there were two raceson the Arkansas River between these two boats. My mother, Marion Sue Bradford, later Marion Sue Thompson was commissioned to do a painting of this race by then owner of the Border Start and the Delta Queen. The Border Star ran our of Little Rock for several years. Just a small piece of history in Marion Sue's large collection of steamboat history.
