Loved seeing this in Algiers New Orleans...the calliope mixed in with the actual sound of a paddleboat docked across the mississippi river
Will it be recorded for documentation for the public?
I will be there!

It is incredible to see a group of people pretending to like that noise making monstrosity while plugging their ears with their fingers and museum staff handing out ear plugs. 🤦🏻♂️
