From the archives: The Delta Queen

This morning a former coworker who happened to buy me lunch the other day asked for a favor: a scanned copy of an old photo of a boat that left the Ohio River a few decades ago. I located a copy, although not a really good one, scanned it and forwarded it to him.

In the process, I figured I might as well scan some other photos from the 1970s and 1980s while I had everything hooked up. Several of those pictures were of the Delta Queen, seen here docking at the Gallipolis, Ohio, riverfront sometime in the 1980s.

If the politics can be worked out, the Delta Queen might get back on the river someday. If so, it will be an event that will be documented heavily. People will line banks and drones will be in the air to see the old boat. I already have my shooting spots picked out.
