If you happen to be walking or driving by the shop at night, this wonderful scale replica of a Mississippi steam boat – The River Queen – might just catch your eye, as we keep the case it’s in lighted day and night.
Until taking a quick skim through Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steamboats_of_the_Mississippi), I hadn’t realized how big these old riverboats could get. Take a look at this picture from the Wiki article:
The Wiki caption reads: “Saloon of Mississippi River Steamboat Princess” (Adrien Persac, 1861), showing elaborate interior of an antebellum Mississippi steamboat
Dimensions: About 12″H x 24″L x 6″D.
Price: $75.00. Includes the glass case and lighting. (Plus the obligatory 5.5% State of Maine Sales Tax, of course.)

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – it was his baby.
He loved me, and oh how I loved him.
