Subject: Re: Goldenrod Showboat - Update


I'm wondering if that might mean its going to the L&D
museum site. Hopefully it will go somewhere and be
used and visible to the public. It was great when the
ST. Louis levee was alive in the 70s and 80s. When the
DQ docked, she was just downstream from the Goldenrod
and the Becky Thatcher nee Mississippi III and the
Admiral. There we had 4 wonderful examples of
steamboating: tourist/packet, towboat, excursion and
showboat all in one spot. Up until its end of St. Louis
docking, the Goldenrod was vital, with the St. Louis
Ragtimers playing on the 2nd deck. Don Franz, their
tuba player, often was a part of the DQ band when
someone went on vacation, or when the Colonel got
called off to another top-secret mission - no that's a
whole other story! Anyway, here's hoping the Goldenrod
is as lucky as the DQ and gets responsible new owners.
