Retired paddle steamer by georgiegirl

This worn out paddle steamer is moored on the Murray River next to the PS Marion at Mannum, South Australia.
The state of this poor old paddlesteamer appears worse when moored near the other houseboats, some made of nothing but glass.

    Nice shot.

  • Thanks Elphonline. I took so many, but this one shows its characteristics better and the newer ones aren’t crowding it so much.

  • Thanks AndyGii… but I think it’s a tad too small for next year’s holiday!

  • Wouldn’t that be nice!! Sadly, its in need of lots of TLC… but its moored next to the PS Marion outside the museum so maybe its waiting it’s turn!
