Default AVALON in Davenport 1952

David T.'s posting about a newfound IDLEWILD photo got me digging in my files, for nothing specific, just looking for some new material. Here are 2 snapshots taken of the AVALON in Davenport in 1952, in her coal-burning days. '52 was the last year she stopped in Davenport. 1953-61 she ran out of Rock Island, straight across the river from Davenport.
The little boat in the background of the coal-hauling pix is the PIPE DREAM.
