This is a 1920s Lincoln Beach photo taken from the bluffs.
Lincoln Beach was a popular place to enjoy the river. Thousands of bathers would gather, arriving by canoes and small boats from up and down the river. This popular beach was a byproduct of earlier dredging by the Union Sand and Gravel Company, which operated a separating plant from aggregate on the east bend of the river.
