Subject: Re: Steamboat fuels/McMillan Oil...in Davenport area


MacMillan is no longer in business. The Queens were one
of their bigger accounts, and when they left, so did
MacMillan. I've climbed down that rung ladder on the
piling a few times, and once we had to get Mom Tooker
off via that route. That's also where the sheriff's
department removed the asst. engineer of whom I spoke a
while back. Back in the good old 'lock-hopping' days, I
caught a few rides from there up to 15 or down to 16. I
can imagine your mother's fear, steamboats aren't
always in the most convenient places for boarding
unofficially, but hey its a steamboat and we'll get on
somehow! ............
