This is the original Watercolour painting by Gerry Embleton.

In 1870 the captains of the Natchez and the Robert E Lee steamboats raced their craft from New Orleans up the river to St Louis.

The Robert E Lee won the race by virtue of taking only 75 passengers, making none of its usual stops and being refuelled whilst still travelling at top speed. People still argue as to which was truly the faster vessel.

A lovely atmospheric painting that was originally published in Look and Learn #700 14th June 1975.
