Phyllis: The 75th Anniversary book that was published by Greene Line in 1965 contains wonderful photos and lots of information, expertly researched by Richard Stewart. I hope you have it in your library. The last page of the booklet contains a chonological listing of boats that were owned by Greene Line. Greene Line had an "official" green and white flag in later years, but I don't know when it came into use. Jeff Spear has one hanging in his home that was given to him by the late Capt. Roddy Hammett. I don't have one in my collection -- Jane, please take note, in case you have some lurking in your basement archives, ha ha!!! The MQ was at the Louisville wharf this morning as I crossed the bridge enroute to my office. She was landed head downstream and I noted that the feathers have been replaced on her stacks. It always "makes my day" to see visiting steamboats at the landing!
