David Gulden posted two photos with the comment: "ALEXANDER MACKENZIE."Curt Smith: She's still at Joliet rusting away. Went by her a month ago. I don't even think Joliet drydock is in business anymore. Seen that small boat they use for moving stuff in the back. In the day that little boat was built at Dubuque Boat Boiler she was Mary and Floyd Thompson and other names.Tom O'Dell: One of the last big Steam Sternwheelers built by Marrieta Manufacturing at Point Pleasant. She and her sister the Jason (Herbert E. Jones). Both built to use Bunker C Fuel Oil and later converted to Coal. Her wheel was at Port Amherst for many years. Amherst had bought for one purpose to use fir spare parts for the Jones.[Some comments indicate that it is headed towards the CB&Q Bridge]

Tom O'Dell: They are looking awfully hard at the Pitman Arm. Wonder if there was a problem.
Dick Karnath: My father, Walt Karnath, was pilot on her for several years. As I recall he took her to Joliet for her retirement about 1951 or 2.
I've read that the price of scrape steel has gone up, so I better save the current image.
The crane looks old, but not the U-shaped thing under it.
Is the dry dock a submersible that is pumped out so that it floats and the working area is dry?
We can see the sterns of the "office boat" and the little towboat.
I've taken photos of the sternwheeler from the other side of the river because it caught my eye, but I have too many "Joliet" folders to easily find those photos. If I come across the photos when looking for something else, I now have a place to put them.
