Low River at Carrollton, undated

A major reconstruction of the levee in Carrollton took place around 1910-1911; this photograph may show it in progress. But levee repairs were typically undertaken during periods of low water, so this view could just as well date from an earlier or later time. It is unfortunate that Allison wasn’t more specific as to the location and date of this interesting image!
