Additional Details:
The new streamlined excursion steamer "Admiral." is the largest river passenger steamer ever built in America, the first to be streamlined design and absence of all exterior decorative frills is the most outstanding feature in the appearance of the new steamer. With a length of 375 feet, the new steamer is longer than an average city block. Her steel hull is divided into 74 water-tight compartments and is so constructed that with as many as 11 of these compartments flooded, the vessel would still remain afloat.
