P-085: Carpenter-Moore Family Riverboat Scrapbooks

This collection of six scrapbooks was acquired from the estate of Dorothy Jane Mahaffey Carpenter Moore. Dorothy and her family have been prominent St. Louis philanthropists for generations. The scrapbooks contain hundreds of photographs of riverboats operating on the Mississippi River from the late 19th- and early 20th-centuries. Many pages include captions, newspaper clippings, and information about the vessels including where they were built, cost of construction, and significant events in the boat's history.
