Title: San Carlos River near Peridot, Southern Arizona - 1940
In 1940, the gaging station for the San Carlos River was on a railroad bridge south of the little town of Peridot. This downstream view from that bridge shows the gage house on the extreme left and a safety railing next to it. The channel is wide following a flood, and scattered Frémont cottonwood trees are along channel right. The dense shrubs on the low terrace on the right bank are unidentified but might be coyote willow. (Roy H. Monroe).
