Default Coney Island Calliopes

With Memorial Day being the traditional beginning of the season for excursion steamboating and the joyful tooting of calliopes heralding another summer of river excursions, here are several images of calliopes, two of them featuring the famed calliopist Homer Denney.

(1) Homer Denney at calliope of Coney Island Str. Princess
(2) Calliope on Str. Princess
(3) Homer Denney at BELLE OF LOUISVILLE calliope - 1966

Have a Safe and Happy Memorial Day Holiday!
