Happy Birthday to THE WATERWAYS JOURNAL
, published weekly at St. Louis since 1887 and known as "The Riverman's Bible". Loaded with news, photos, advertising and history, the publication has long been the lifeline of the river industry.
The June 25th edition of the WJ is the special anniversary issue, containing 132 pages.
It is truly an honor and a privilege to be a small part of the WJ as editor of the Old Boat Column. A whistle salute to ALL, past and present, who have published the magazine for the past 125 years -- and here's to many more!
