Roy's Postcards: 1983/06/07


I walked down to the Mississippi River from my hotel this morning and saw this board as well as others going by on the river. Then I browsed by antique, junk and trinket shops on Royal Street in the French Quarter.

Postcard back:

An authentic 285 foot sternwheeler. Daily river cruises. Home Port: New Orleans, La.

Leonard's comments:

The front and back are clearly mismatched, but I wouldn't be surprised if the front was New Orleans as well.

The New Orleans Steamboat Company still exists and still has the phone number listed on the postcard.
