Boating the Nile

Today's picture is from 1936 and it shows some men boating the Nile. The boat is reminiscent of the movie "The African Queen". I cant seem to remember what river that was suppose to be on, but it was a great movie.


  1. The Ulanga River and it feed into, Lake Wittelsbach. I also loved that great movie..

  2. Some years ago, the actual African Queen from the movie showed up at the Houston Boat Show. It was the coolest thing ever -- lots of fun to see it.

  3. It was a great movie, but I just about had a stroke when Spencer Tracy started carrying on about the leeches. The sort of leeches that get on people don't grow in Africa. Ah, well.
