  1. Looks like the landing at Vicksburg MS,,it's paved over now and there's a casino right close to the area where these steamboats are tied up.That would also be the Yazoo diversionary canal,the MS River having changed its course in 1876.The Corps of Engineers dug the canal along the old River bed right around 1900 or so.
