description:

The IU Showboat was technically just a barge. It was pulled/pushed up and down river by the Attaboy paddleboat seen here. The calliope associated with the IU Showboat was actually part of the Attaboy. The calliope can just barely be seen on the top of the tug just behind the wheelhouse.
