Default the PREZ article

They've had many pix from me since February and finally wrote an article. However, don't believe that what I said I really said... Bill takes liberties with quoting people! And of course, the PREZ came out in 1924 as the CINCINNATI, a packet boat. Streckfus bought her and completely rebuilt her into the excursion boat which started service July 4, 1933. It was interesting that they were able to talk to David Campbell, the owner. I wonder where the various sites are where the pieces are stored? The photos I receive come from either St. Elmo or Alton. I just looked at this online article, and there are many more pix than appeared in the newspaper. That's the first time I've seen one of a semi loaded with pieces - can you imagine your thoughts if you passed that on the interstate?
