This web site is dedicated to the display of pictures of and information about the rich diversity of modern and historic riverboats that ply the rivers of the United States, primarily the Mississipi and Ohio, but also any of the other inland rivers. It is an extension of or complement to my other web site, Dick's Towboat Gallery. Over the years I have accumulated a collection of pictures of various boats as they passed by our home, and I will be displaying as many as I can on this site. Except where otherwise noted, these photographs were taken by me, in various locations in and around St. Paul, MN, mostly near mile 819.4 on the Upper Mississippi River (UMR), about twenty miles downstream of St. Paul. At any given time, some of them may have been taken just yesterday.

If you have good photographs you have taken of riverboats on the Mississippi, or the Ohio, or any of the Western Rivers, and you would like them displayed here, send them to me via an e-mail attachment, and I will post them along with the proper credits. I may adjust color balance, brightness, contrast, etc., and/or crop them as I feel necessary, although I'll try to disturb your work as little as possible. Photos are typically displayed here at 640 x 480 resolution, but I prefer starting with higher resolution photos so that there is more leeway for cropping. My e-mail is on broadband, so any resolution that's not too painful for you to upload is OK.

Clicking on one of the arrows next to the thumbnails list on any page will rotate the list up or down. Clicking on the 'NEXT' or 'PREV' legends above or below the main image on any page will cause a larger version of the next or previous image in the thumbnails list to replace the current image. Some pages may have access to full resolution versions of some images. In these cases, clicking on the main image or the explanatory legend below it will display the full resolution image, which may be quite large. Enjoy!
