Mississippi Queen Whistle
Listen to the whistle of the Mississippi Queen: MP 3
The Mississippi Queen's original whistle was a three bell whistle built by Art Davis (Davis Calliope Works, Seattle, WA), the same as its calliope. By 1978 it was removed and replaced by the GORDON C. GREENE's whistle. The Cincinnati brass of the Delta Queen Co. didn't think that the old Gordon C. Greene’s whistle looked in keeping with their new steamboat, and the original Davis whistle was returned to its perch with one of the bells removed.
The today’s Mississippi Queen whistle is from the Str. MISSOURI and was poured by Lunkenheimer in 1921.
