Subject: New Library Webpage


The Madison-Jefferson County Public Library is in the process of setting up a new website dedicated to steamboats and railroads and their impact on Madison and the surrounding area. We will post many of the Harry Lemen Collection pictures of steamboats. Our problem is that we are not steamboat people and the knowlege that you people have and take for granted is beyond us. Could we occasionally prevail upon you to answer some of our questions? For instance, we have a picture of the timbers that were shipped here from Washington (145 footers) in the late 1920's to build the G. W. McBride but I cannot find in our newspapers when she was built, or was this a rebuild, or what? Ways Directory says, I think, 1932 but another source says before 1929. Any help would be appreciated. If any one would want to contact me via e-mail please feel free. I am adrift here.
