Default "Streckfus Stuff"

In my Streckfus files I found a few photos I thought y'all might enjoy. The first is of Capt. Roy Streckfus aboard the ADMIRAL at St. Louis in June, 1966. The calliope is visible in the background along with the Gateway Arch. The second view is the Streckfus Str. SENATOR (formerly the SAINT PAUL) with the calliope (forward of the port stack) being played to attract excursionists at Pittsburgh. The third (and faded) view (from an old scrapbook) is from a Streckfus Steamers Magazine and shows the calliope on the ADMIRAL being played during a cruise.
