A Waterline Cased Diorama – Paddle Steamer St Louis Belle

A cased waterline model of a 19th century Mississippi paddle steamer the St Louis Belle

Packet boats were very important because they were used to carry crops up and down the rivers. Many river towns were built near large southern plantations to make getting crops to packet
boats easier.

Packets were also important because they carried people. On many of the boats there was a first class deck where passengers who could afford to traveled in relative luxury, those that couldn’t afford it were down below with the pigs and cattle

With detailed decks and railings this is a lovely striking diorama

Perfect for display and decor
