Default "J. M. WHITE" Arrives

Actually Ben Bernstein's SPIRIT OF AMERICA arriving in Covington, Kentucky on 30 November 1989 where it was completed and went into a short service as an outstanding restaurant and head boat for BB Riverboats and other related maritime operations. The SPIRIT was the closest steamboat facsimile that I could imagine, before the AMERICAN QUEEN, as to what the great cotton packets must have been like.

Of special interest are the smokestacks still on-deck with the puddin's and feathers standing upright far over the heads of Ben and Alan's guests who clamored aboard for a first look at such a curiosity.

Thanks to my son, Jess, who edited and uploaded the video tape onto YouTube.
