C.B.and Q Bridge
High Water August 21,1915
I think the mouth of this "creek" is too far away from the Mississippi for this water to be backed up from a Mississippi River flood. Judging from the meanders in the creek, it has dug itself into a canon on relatively flat land and it does not flow well. And it doesn't have access to flood plains. Thus its water level raises dramatically.
The satellite image also allowed me to determine that it was a deck truss bridge.
