For pictures of the "steam boat" life I recommend that you contact the St. Louis 
Merchantile Library in St. Louis, MO.  They 
have a "collection" within the library [Herman T. Potts Inland National 
Waterways Library] that should be able to provide you with what you're looking 

Hope this helps.

Subject: Request for resources and/or ideas

As some may recall, I've been reading chapters and sketches from Mark
Twain as an avatar in Second Life.  I've done all the sketches from the
Jumping Frog as well as about 30 chapters from Roughing It.  I've been
recording these sessions and producing videos from them for posting on
YouTube.  The earliest are nothing more than slide shows from book
illustrations, but lately I've included video recorded during the
reading sessions.  I would like to include additional footage and images
but have located only a small amount of material from public domain

I'm currently planning on doing readings from Life on the Mississippi.
It would be great if I could locate appropriate footage of the river,
steamboats, etc.  These videos are not for commercial purposes at all,
although I'm not adverse to taking donations.  Besides trying to keep my
brain active as a remedy to my stultifying day job I'm trying to do
something creative.

Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.
