Calliope on Gordon C. Greene Steamboat

The Majestic Steamboats

Before trains and planes, mass freight and passenger transportation used the river ways.
These majestic behemoths elicited curiosity and awe as they belched their black smoke
from engine rooms deep in the bowels of the ship.  Now-a-days, just a casual viewing of
these riverboat photos conjures up wonder and awe.  Enjoy a few photos.
