In another file I found a few more images from the "Big Blow" of 1969 on the St. Louis Riverfront.

(1) St. Louis Visitors Center Barge, Stern of BECKY (note damage to sternwheel and collapsed Monsanto pipeline) and towboat ERNA A. in distance. Saturday night, June 28, 1969.
(2) Visitors Center Barge (and collapsed Monsanto pipeline) formerly the wharfboat for the excursion boat MISSISSIPPI BELLE, operated by Capt. Art Denkmann, who installed the gingerbread trim with the consultation of Miss Ruth Ferris.
(3) SANTA MARIA on barge at St. Louis Ship - Summer, 1969. All photos by the late Gary Clermont.
