African Queen (Steamer) (Tacoma-made) - 2

Back of Photo:
Steam escaped from the broken pipes on the coal-fired engine of the African Queen after she broke down during a news media cruise of Seattle's Lake Union Monday morning. Damage to the 76-year-old African steamer of movie fame evidently came during a January visit to the mid-west during sub-zero cold spell. The tour continued via a tow. The boat will be on display at the Big Tacoma Boat Show this week. The steam pressure valve indicated zero pressure and the boat whistles remained silent because of the broken pipes.

Senior citizens from all over the county danced to the tunes of Pep Perry's Combo, a quartet playing music from the 40's and 50's, at Green River Community College. The college's Special Events Program sponsored the Valentine's dance which was free. Seniors enjoyed refreshments and each got a complimentary photo taken with their sweetheart.
(The program has been going for about 4 years)
