Steamer Bob Blanks in 1907

From the Collection of the Ouachita Parish Public Library.

The above photo comes from a scrapbook held in the Special Collections department. It shows the Pargoud Line steamboat the Bob Blanks coming through one of the bridges at Monroe. I believe that is the railroad bridge and the person taking the photo is standing on the Endom bridge. Neat shot!
