*Elegance on the CITY OF MONROE*
Steamboating colleagues:
Jim, your follow photo taken in the CITY OF MONROE cabin one of the classics, and for good reason. The old ANCHOR LINE was the supreme in its day. I'd give a pretty for one of those cabin chairs with the ANCHOR LINE logo on the back. The tall cruet set with cut glass bottles for oil, vinegar etc. same as one upstairs here in the dining room, though not from one of their boats. Another like it also appears in cabin photos of the QUEEN CITY. Such implements usually provided from stock by restaurant, hotel suppliers ashore.

Let's 'pretend' this is the same boat Ellis Mace wrote about. And there's Head Steward Mose standing down the way in his dark suit. Pride shows on the faces of his staff. It was long, hard, grueling work morning to night. Not to repeat, but Mose and his male staff had far better manners, understanding of good food and protocol than most of the passengers they served.

Good work Jim. With your archival and photo skills, you should be a 'resident' in Howard Museum archival research.
