Mississippi River Lock & Dam No. 15 Collection 2006-21

Inclusive dates: 1931-1933

Scope Notes
 

This collection is comprised primarily of images taken by the U.S. Engineers. The pictures catalog the entire construction of the No. 15 Lock & Dam on the Mississippi River, which was constructed under and around the Fourth Government Bridge between Rock Island and Davenport. Most pictures are of the construction of the lock, dam, and cofferdams during 1931-1933 but some are of the Fourth Government Bridge and surrounding area before and after the completion of Lock & Dam No. 15.

All pictures seem to be the originals from the 1930’s and some have duplicates (9, 15, 25, 26, 65, 67, 68, 69, 73, 76, 127, 135, 165, 166, 176, 178, 184, 191, 192). The majority of the pictures were cataloged by the U.S. Engineers in the 1930’s but pictures 2006.21.189–194 did not have dates or descriptions on them. 


Images 2006.21.1-188 have been arranged chronologically according to the identification numbers written on them by the U.S. Engineers. The remainder were unnumbered.
