Photo Walk Description
Come and join us as we explore the Shreveport Water Work Museum and the Downtown Shreveport District. The plant is typical of waterworks from the turn of the last century that were once common throughout the United States, but which have long since disappeared from the landscape. Through a combination of circumstances, McNeill not only survived intact beyond its era, but actually remained in operation using antique steam-powered machinery dating from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. These exceedingly rare examples of bygone technology can not only be found at McNeill, but are still intact in their original historic location and are in an operable configuration thanks to meticulous maintenance by water department personnel before final retirement in 1980. The site offers many interesting photographic opportunities and should captivate photographers of every skill level. After spending some time at the museum, we plan to venture out into the downtown district of Shreveport, where many historic buildings and unique photo opportunities await. We will end the photo walk at the Blind Tiger Resturaunt, have lunch or simply a beverage and share our photos from the days shoot.
