J.R.Weise of Cincinnati is indeed the Delta Queen's #1 Fan. He has been recording her every move for 50 years. We sadly watched her make her way down stream on her perhaps last journey on the river.
Congress failed to sign a document allowing her to carry passengers at night, since her structure is made of wood.
"Here Comes the Shrimp Boat" "Say What?"
Captain Ray West and First Mate Delela Callahan stopped by for a visit on their way up to Cincinnati.
The SUNDANCER sure turned some heads, not often (First time for me) do we see a Srimp Boat in these waters.
The frieze, "Apollo and Muses" built into the wall enhances the beauty of the structure.
Bass Tournaments are held almost every week-end at nearby Rocky Point Marina. This particular morning the fog was too thick to let every boat out at once. This made a wonderful picture as they waited their turn.
This scene of the Cannelton Locks and Dam being built was taken in 1968, as you can see the Locks was functional to let river traffic up and down. Many families that came here for the project choose to stay in this area and live after the job was done.
Downstream of the Lighthouse is the Cannelton Locks and Dam, pictured here are two of the Corp members aboard the workboat, the David H. Cook picture
This was the Steamer "K&I" years ago used to ferry people and vehicles, even horse drawn ones, across the river.
Thanks to Bob Cummings and others, the Cannelton/Hawesville bridge became a vital link for the two cities. great
What a fantastic view from atop the hill, near the water tower, in Rockport Indiana.
There were only Two skiers in the United States in the '70s that could (or would) go over the jump approaching it backwards, doing a 180o turn off the Front and skiing away. Jack Brown was one of those skiers.
Jack Brown performed this stunt at every ski show. This four foot step ladder was balanced on a disc after taking off from the dock, then climbed to the top and held on to the rope with his teeth.
One of the many events enjoyed at the ski school each year. These kites had two methods of launching, running off of a high rock cliff or being towed by a boat to reach the desired altitude before releasing, then decending back to the water or sometimes land (terra firma).
Sue Brown prepares for take-off on a parasail. Sue was an instructor at the Lincoln Hills Ski School and one of the founders.
Students were often given an added thrill by getting to ride in the Sea Plane while attending water ski lessons here in Perry County.
