Dear Mike and gang:
So glad M'Lissa Kesterman nailed the CITY OF LOUISVILLE dates for you here in the Cincinnati harbor. She has her hand on the collection at the Cincinnati Historical Society Library for sure. The Str. HERCULES CARREL, as per previous .org discussions, was a fixture here around Cincinnati for years and years. A real hard working girl who appears again and again in photos of Cincinnati. So named after the real live Hercules Carrell of the old days and later involved in the ownership/management of the famed 'Cincinnati Marine Railway' here at Rookwood Crossing on Eastern Ave in the East End. There's one steamboat I would have liked to meet. There are times when history has a mind of its own and the details are dug out. Just takes time, patience and 'steamboat forensics.'

Cheers,
R. Dale Flick
