Hello Luke, I suspect that the Steamboat association site mentioned in the previous message http://www.steamboat.org.uk/register/index.htm is your best bet for the vessel(s) you are interested in. There are many other sites of broader interest. For Paddle Steamers try http://freespace.virgin.net/tom...

Re: Lake Windermere Steamers

Never say never....

Good luck and be happy

Re: Lake Windermere Steamers

It's a pleasure !

I suspect that if you find a way of making contact with the current owner of Shamrock (R. Mallinson) your quest for more information and images could be resolved.

Good luck and best wishes

Re: Lake Windermere Steamers

Hello, It's a splendid image. The postcards will certainly be out there so do keep looking at all the usual places, but why not try to locate the boat itself ? I tried a quick search and ended up at the Steam Boat Association of Great Britain Web Site and they have a record of what may be your vesse...

Re: Big Blow Out Postcard by Walt Munson. Information Please???

It may or may not help but the Syracuse University has a collection of Walt Munson Cartoons. Below is a link to their site, to the lower left of the page is an 'ask a question about this collection' link. Could be worth a try.. http://library.syr.edu/digital/guides/m/munson_w.htm#d0e48 Good luck.
