Default Str. PRESIDENT Whistle

In response to a recent inquiry about the 4 barrel whistle used on the Str. ADMIRAL and later the PRESIDENT, here is a photo of it, that I took at St. Louis on May 11, 1975. The whistle was originally used on the Streckfus Str. J.S. DeLUXE. After the PRESIDENT was converted to diesel in 1979, they went back to using the single barrel whistle that was on her for years when she tramped and at New Orleans -- although blown by compressed air. Where the J.S. DeLUXE whistle (perhaps it was even on her as the QUINCY in her previous life ???) might be today is anybody's guess!

The other two accompanying images were also taken at the same time, with the Str. BECKY THATCHER (formerly the MISSISSIPPI) also in view, during a period of high water at the St. Louis levee.
