Default The Great Steamboat Race - 40 Years Ago

Inasmuch as today is the Kentucky Derby Festival's river event involving the BELLE OF LOUISVLLE and BELLE OF CINCINNATI, I thought I'd share a batch of photos from the GREAT STEAMBOAT RACE celebration of 1969, when the BELLE and DQ actually bumped, bringing much excitement to that dismally cold afternoon when the temperature was so frigid calliope tunes were barely recognizable! Hard to believe it's been FORTY years ago!
