Here’s a view of a baptism taking place in the Ohio River in Downtown Louisville from the New York Public Library. I couldn’t find a date or a precise location for the photo, any sleuths have ideas? It looks like the spire in the skyline could be Central Station, once located at the foot of Seventh Street. The Second Street Bridge, which began construction in 1928 is not visible, but the Mayor Andrew Broaddus Coast Guard vessel dating to 1929, with its signature watchtower, is visible on the wharf.
