"Taken from the Brookland side of the Congaree..." :
View of Columbia, S.C., 1908.

Congaree River - 53.0 K

With all the rain that we have experienced in January and February, which caused the level of many rivers to rise significantly, we can sympathize with these earlier citizens of Columbia who anxiously watched the Congaree River from the bridge in 1908. Photograph by William L. Blanchard who worked in Columbia from 1906-39.

Note identification of birds, smoke, and skyscraper along the skyline of Columbia, along with admission, "It's great to be crazy."
