Admiral riverboat says farewell to St. Louis
The S. S. Admiral, built in 1907 and a long-time fixture of the Mississippi riverfront in St. Louis, was towed away Tuesday to be dismantled.
The President Casino was formerly housed in the boat until last June, when the casino's parent company, Pinnacle Entertainment, surrendered its gaming license.
