Virtual 3D Steamboat Tour & other info (Chaperon)


Recommended Posts

An extra-nice detail: in the "Ladies Cabin" location on the boiler deck (go inside the main cabin and head toward the stern), there's an 1845 painting of fur traders on the Missouri River by Missouri artist George Caleb Bingham on the wall. A slightly odd choice as Chaperon was an Ohio River boat in a much later era, but as I love Bingham's work documenting scenes of American western rivers during the early steamboat period, it was really cool to see this one hanging there.
