Lee Line art Pride of the Bends_0001These two folk art paintings of the James Lee, Kate Adams and Rosa Lee were sent to me by Jean Cash Scott whose grand parents John Pennel and Emma Cash Pennel lived on island 51.  She believes the paints were done in the late 1800’s or early 1900’s.  The Lee Line would have served this island along with numerous planter landings along the Mississippi.    The steamboat in the above right corner of the top painting is the RUTH another Lee Line boat.  Click on each image for a larger view. Thank you Jean for sharing these great folk art paintings.
