About this Image

Title Culvert Headwall, with "Bowl Treatment"
Date May 19, 1937
Description Image of a brick culvert and headwall running underneath the Blue Ridge Parkway. The headwall curves outward in a half circle around the culvert. A small amount of water appears to run into the culvert drainage area, coming from the bottom left corner of the image. The road is unpaved, and dirt and rocks cover the road and the roadside on and around the culvert. On the opposite side of the road is a grass-covered hill sloping upward, with some trees and a wooden fence. There is a small house or shed on the upper left corner of the image. Image taken near milepost 160, section 1R, station 1276 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, in Floyd County, Va. Image taken by Edward H. Abbuehl on May 19, 1937.
