Paddleboat - Captain's Creamery

The Captain's Creamery is an ice cream store located in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. What's notable is the working portion of the store has been built to resemble a paddleboat bridge, once common on the Ohio River. Out back is a genuine paddleboat wheel of the Steamer Weber W. Sebald (built as Steamer John W. Weeks in 1927). The drive arm connecting the wheel to the steam engine rests on the ground next to the wheel.

This is close to being on-par with the Concrete Outline of the USS South Dakota without the outline, but I still applaud the effort.
