Default Excursion Boat Entertainment

Excursion boat operators are constantly trying to find new ways to bally-hoo up a crowd. Here's a unique one on the Str. AMERICA......a boxing match. I believe that,unlike yesterdays posting, this one is more politically correct. From the looks of the opposite river bank, I believe this was taken while the boat was enroute to Rose Island going up the Indiana side of 12 Mile Island. Robert G.B.Rose, the owner of the amusement park, was a good showman and knew how to attract a crowd. Perhaps this was a preview for fights to come at the park.
By the way, I'm about out of interesting subjects, if you like these, let me know and I'll look for more.
