Photo of the Week
April 8, 2012

I have been waiting to post this photo for weeks.  This is probably one of the most exciting photos I have ever seen in this French Dredges series.  We have all seen the ladder dredges in the past weeks, but here is the mother of all!!  This beast is a suction dredge.  It is tied up I surmise near the mouth of the French Canal with a very handsome building in view.  I also surmise that this building could very well have been the headquarter office building.  Only a surmise, but seems logical.  I have never seen this photo from post French construction days, so it may have been demolished when the Americans took over the task.

More mouth watering stuff!!  I love it.

Next week is another super photo from Ron's collection.
