Old Rez Scenes

Been a long time since we've posted any old Rez photos - so - a fix for you history junkies.   A few shots that date back to the early 1960's.

Taken below the dam long before the reservoir filled, extra credit given if you can ID the make and year model of the car.

Aerial of the spillway.  Water had been diverted from the Pearl River to run through the Spillway. The main lake was empty.

It looks like a 1942 Studebaker, or a Hupmobile

Sorry fellas. It's a 59 Chevy BelAir.

Sorry fella....7:07 AM is correct. 1960 Chevrolet. It takes a sharp eye to notice the minor differences in a 59 and a 60 from a distance, the hint is the front fender.
