Default My Favorite Picture of the BETSY ANN

While doing work at the University of Louisville photo archives, I ran across this photo of the BETSY ANN. It was taken by a photographer from the Caufield and Schuck studio who was standing on the newly opened Municiple Bridge (now known as the Clark Memorial Bridge) probably in 1930.....you BETSY ANN experts can probably date the photo exactly with the clues the boat is newly painted and it was taken in Louisville. I believe they only ran one season in the Pittsburg to Louisville trade.
I like this photo because of the different perspective. Look at the three men standing on the boiler deck who are waving to their friends as they pass the Greene Line wharfboat. I really believe the man in the middle is Bob McCann.
Hope you enjoy studying this photo as much as I do.
