Have you ever thought about traveling to California and wondered what it would be like? Have you ever wanted to own a piece of art? What would it be like traveling from California to Kentucky linking the places you have been? Better still, what do you think about an Artist that gives the public the ability to interact directly with the art by giving you a piece of her art, free to art critics and lovers alike?

Steamboats have been around since 1787 when John Fitch made his maiden voyage up the Delaware. When people think of them they think of the Belle of Louisville, Delta Queen and the Great Steamboat race every year at Derby time. Everyone is excited to see who is going to win those Golden Antlers. Kids and adults alike love the sound of the whistles and watching the turning of the great paddles on the back. It makes one wonder what James Howard saw through the lens of his camera at his tender young age when he began to photograph Steamboats in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Did he picture the steam billowing up through the big stacks? Did he see the soot on the bow and landing, even at times the clothing? James 'Captain Jim' Howard experienced all of this, and more...and his wonderful photography shows it all.
James ‘Captain Jim’ Howard, the owner of the Howard Shipyards, grandson of the company’s founder, James Howard and avid photographer documented the lives of his family and the years of the Steamboats, their voyages and his family’s traditions. They are a part of...
