Thought this was kind of pretty.  My ever-vigilant webcam got lucky and captured this photo recently:

"Belle of Louisville on the Ohio at sunset"

I've got a few other neat ones - I've been thinking of putting up a gallery on the WeatherCam page.

Sounds like a plan!   8)

Only thing missing from that photo is plums of coal smoke from the stacks.  I would assume it was converted to an oil burner many years ago by now.

I found some information on the steamer:

Sounds like a nice name for a bed and breakfast there.  
Well, I guess it would be a "dinner and bed" instead.  Wait, they already have hotels.  Never mind...
