A brochure published by Greene Line Steamers of Cincinnati, Ohio, promoting cruises on the Mississippi, Ohio and Tennessee Rivers by the "S.S. Delta Queen" in 1950. The company was founded by Gordon and Mary Greene in 1890 and by the 1940s operated 26 boats. The "Delta Queen" was acquired in 1946 from California and began operating cruises in 1948. However, financial problems led the company to sell all its boats except the "Delta Queen" during the 1950s and in 1958 the company was taken over by outside investors. It ceased to operate the boat under the Greene Line name in 1973.
