Monroe’s Riverfront in 1907.

Low Water on the Ouachita

I love this one!  The water was incredibly low during the summer of 1907.  Can you imagine wading across the Ouachita?  The big building in the foreground is Ouachita National Bank and Central Savings Bank and Trust Company building built the year before on Grand Street.  It would  be torn down the 70’s.  The building with smoke coming out from behind it is the Monroe Hotel.  Of course the bridge is the “Traffic Bridge” which most citizens at the time would call it the “DeSiard Street bridge”.  We now call it the Endom Bridge!
