Default Menke Showboats & Towboats

Thanks to Ruth Ferris and Marcella Harding (Capt. Bill and Charlie Menke's niece) I have quite a number of photos of the showboats and towboats operated by the Menke brothers. Marcella, now deceased, told me that she loved to spend summer vacations traveling with her uncles aboard their showboats and that her favorite trip was the Cumberland River route taken by the Showboat HOLLYWOOD.

Herewith is a photo of the HOLLYWOOD, pushed by the CHAPERON, with the calliope in view. The Menke brothers used the CHAPERON, CROWN HILL and WENONAH for both their showboats (GOLDENROD and HOLLYWOOD) at various times.

I have a print of the picture Jim mentions, but it is restricted by the University of Louisville Photo Archives.
