Default Roll Dat Cottin

It might not be cotton, but here is a picture of the SOUTHLAND unloading frieght on to the Louisville Wharf in 1926. Notice all the freight stacked up on the boiler deck and around the main cabin. Passenger space was secondary when room was needed for high paying frieght. Wonder if mate H.M. (Doc) Carr is on the head of the boat directing traffic. The famous SOUTHLAND whistle is clearly visible in this picture as is the Government Dam above the falls.
