Men Docking "The Island Queen" River Boat

Description

Black and white photograph of a group of men leaning over the back of The Island Queen river boat while trying to tie it to the dock. There are four men on the boat all looking down while they approach the dock. The inscription is typed on a piece paper that is pasted onto the back of the photograph. The paper has dimmed with age and reads: "The Island Queen, an all-metal river boat fashioned after Mississippi [?] stern wheelers, docks after an excursion trip from Saugatuck to New Richmond on the picturesque Kalamazoo river. The boat was built and is skippered by Dick Hoffman. It has facilities for some fifty passengers. The Island Queen was launched in 1954." Underneath the typed description there is a "-O-" and in the bottom right-hand corner there is the stamp which reads, "Joe Armstrong. Allegan, Michigan."
