Description Print from glassplate negative. View of the Tennessee River taken from an unidentified raised location. Appears to be the same location as image 1994.108.046 but closer to the water and further down the jetty. There is a jetty that runs along the river edge. There is a gap in the jetty and men are standing around looking at it. There is a large barge to the right with men pulling on something, possibly the railroad tracks that are hanging loose from the gap in the jetty. A man is standing on a paddle board next to the barge. There is slight damage throughout the image which replicates damage to the glassplate negative.
