The Long-Allen bridge is the Texas St. bridge. Also, O.K. Allen wasn't governor until the 30s.

I vaguely remember the water tower. Wasn't that tower near the spot where Larry Flint's Hustler Club is now?? (And no, I've never been inside) I just remember the water tower before that particular facility was built.

There was a water tower on top of that bar on the corner of Commerce and (I think) Travis. I wasn't around in 1928, though, so I can't say if it's the same one. We should also remember that the river isn't in the same place as it was even in 1928.

I don't know.

Where do I get my Toasty Os

The three bridges in the picture are:
FOREGROUND: The Old Illinois Central Bridge now owned by KCS. In Bossier its adjacent to Horseshoe in Shreveport its adjacent to Barnwell.
MIDDLE: The "Old" bridge or Traffic Street Bridge which was at the location presently occupied by the I-20 Bridge. It connected Barksdale Blvd at Red River Chevrolet to Lake Street approximately where the I-20 westbound off ramp for Spring Street is now.
FAR BACKGROUND: The Cotton Belt bridge now owned by Union Pacific but used by both UP and KCS.

bridges

In the 1930s. It would have been too far to the left to have been in this picture even if it had been there in 1928.
