Steamboat on the Mississippi

Steamboat on the Mississippi at Hannibal, Missouri. Steamer "Gordon Greene," a stern-wheeler. "Great volumes of the blackest smoke are rolling and tumbling out of the chimneys — a husbanded grandeur created with a bit of pitch-pine just before arriving at a town." — from "Life On the Mississippi," by Mark Twain. Islands and Illinois shore in background.
