Floods and Fish


Kenneth Hoke and Obe Foreman in front of the Beckes Store in Russellville during the 1943 Flood.  Russellville usually does not flood, but it did in 1943 when the levee broke north of the town.

 Thanks to N. Kent and J. Foreman for these photo.  And then we just had to throw this picture in too, from N. King.
Lloyd Schrader (late 1950s-early 1960s)  with fish caught in a local farm pond. 
Attention:  We need photographs of Russellville.  Please check your albums and ask people if they have any we can scan.
