1 negative : b&w ; 4 x 3 cm. (1 x 1 in.)..
Part of a group of negatives taken of the Salado Creek Bridge in Salado, Independence County, Arkansas, before its destruction by a flood January 20, 1958, according to "Salado Creek Bridge on The Road From Batesville to Oil Trough Bottom" by Ralph Wyatt in the Independence County Chronicle, April 1975. Made of stone, the bridge was on the road from Batesville to Oil Trough Bottom. Deane more than likely took these negatives during his career with the Arkansas Gazette.
Ernest Cecil "Ernie" Deane (1911-1991) was an Arkansas native, journalist, soldier, teacher, folklorist and historian. He is best known as the writer of the original Arkansas Traveler (1956-1965) newspaper column in the Arkansas Gazette for which most of the negatives in this collection were made.
