The Cumberland River flooded again in January of 1937. This view overlooks mile 161 on the Cumberland River, near Gravelotte, T.N., within the town of present-day Ashland City (approximately 16 miles northwest of Nashville). The Lock 1 lower river gage read 56.6' on this day. The view is looking upstream from the bluff on right bank. Note the railroad tracks at left: many of the railroads could not serve the disaster due to bridge damage.
