Dam Footing, Fort Parker State Park, c. 1935

Early in construction, one concrete footing has been poured, and the men are standing atop it; nearby are walkways and a chute to deposit the contents of the concrete-filled Georgia buggies. In the background, the main channel of the Navasota River flows beneath the bridge. (Not visible in the photo is a coffer dam which was constructed to divert water around the construction area).
