“Gordon C. Green”

Among other names, Gordon C. Green was later renamed River Queen and was a floating restaurant in St. Louis. It burned and sank at dockside in December 1967.

You can see the other names and routes, etc., on this page. (Look for the third Cape Girardeau, the boat’s original name.)
