Lots of photos from the 1920's
I have recently acquired a photo album that belonged to my great grandmother of Natchez, MS. I come from a long line of riverboat captains and it appears they liked taking lots of pictures of riverboats. There are also pictures of the 1927 flood, I think mostly on the Yazoo River. Most of the photos are in really good shape. Anyway, I am planning on scanning them and was wondering if there is an ideal place for me to post them. Should I just add them here to my blog section? Perhaps many of you can even identify the boats. There is a great one with 5 boats in the shot. It is very clear, but the writing is so small. One boat has "US Lily", one has "Leader", one has "Grey ...something", one has "East St. Louis something Cape something" and one facing the photographer.
My great grandfather purchased "Lil Rufus" and ferried people between Natchez and Vidalia. Is anyone familiar with that boat? I've got pics of it and "Sheldon" on the Yazoo. And quite a few shots of docks.
Thanks for your time,
