Additional Details:
The new streamlined excursion steamer "Admiral," is the largest river passenger steamer ever built in America, the first to be streamlined and air-conditioned. The sleek, 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 stell 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.
