The Goldenrod

On Sunday I was fortunate to go take some photos of the Goldenrod Showboat near Kampsville Illinois. It is a former showboat that used to frequent the St. Louis area. It had fallen on hard times and was sold for scrap. A group trying to preserve it had bought the boat and anchored it on the Illinois river. During the flooding this year they had to moor in a different spot but when the waters receded it didn’t settle on flat ground and it buckled the hull beyond repair. So now the group is salvaging what they can of the interior for a possible museum. For a couple of hours I and a few other photographer friends got to shoot inside the old lady and preserve a few memories. More photos on my Flickr page.
