Default A picture curiosity

Hey all!

A friend of mine gave me this picture his grandfather had framed on the wall in his Clarksville, IN house for over 50 years. The quality is pretty bad, and I cleaned it up alot.

What I can figure out is the ISLAND QUEEN (1), BONANZA, and INDIANA are laid up behind a island. I am assuming this is above Cincinnati. It looks like it is high water, possibly in the late fall or early spring, as there isn't a leaf on a tree in site.

I am assuming this is in the late teens, looking at the shape of the INDIANA and the boats in the picture.

Anyone wanna take a stab at the story behind this picture? I can only figure out what I have said here...it is a bit of a curiosity to me.
