Willamette Queen 1860

  Willamette Queen 1860
Willamette Queen 1860
In 1851 English photographer Frederick Scott Archer perfected a procedure using a smooth glass negative allowing for better, longer-lasting images, and the ability to make multiple prints from one negative. Glass plate negatives became one of the most common types of photographs. The technology was gradually replaced by film in the early 1900s.
Willamette Queen is located at Riverfront Park, Salem Oregon. OnOne Effects

The "Willamette Queen" was designed as a scaled down likeness of the former Mississippi and Yukon Territory Riverboats with paddles that really do propel her. Built in Newport, Oregon, in 1990, she has a Coast Guard approved capacity of 90. She features a full service bar and a solid oak dance floor which is located on the upper deck in the main dining room. She is a 87 foot, 86 ton, twin paddle-wheeler that operates year-round from Riverfront Park in downtown Salem, Oregon.

LOVE this treatment, Denny - but now you've gone and done it. Gotta try something like this with a couple of old boat photos in my archives! Outstanding!

Nice work here Denny! I can see you enjoyed your play in the DD!
Thanks for supplying the word to "The Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree", there is another fun verse school kids love to sing -
Alternative Humorous Verse
Kookaburra sits on the electric wire
Jumping up and down with his pants on fire
Ouch Kookaburra, ouch
Kookaburra, hot your tail must be.
