The Grand American Queen Back In Town Yesterday

Yesterday, the Grand American Queen showed up in our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, Mississippi.  Here are a few pictures I took and I hope you enjoy.  

Picture taken from Children's Art Park at Catfish Row of the American Queen's smokestacks reaching above the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals.  

A close-up of the Vicksburg Riverfront Mural of the Sprague (Big Mama) the largest steam stern-wheel towboat ever built for inland river service...up against the largest riverboat steamboat ever built today on the Mississippi River.

Looks like the embankment needs to be repaired

I took a picture of a cracks in the pavement and embankment.  Plans are in place to make improvements of the waterfront.  

A side view of the American Queen.

While there it started thundering so I took one more last picture before leaving. The Old Depot Museum in the background.  To the left you have the M/V Mississippi IV landlocked at the Jesse Brent Lower Mississippi River Museum. 

The American Queen will return next Friday to our hometown for another day of tourists sightseeing our historic city.
