Default Calliope on the Streckfus Str. WASHINGTON

With all the hoopla about the calliope from the Streckfus excursion steamer WASHINGTON soon to be placed aboard the riverboat QUEEN of the MISSISSIPPI, I looked up several images of the instrument, presented herewith. These were taken in the summer of 1936 at Steubenville, Ohio, with the boat's band leader Irvin Hardesty at the keyboard.
