    Griggs 1908. Notice that the stone wall at Griggs or "storage dam" is still standing to this day...hasn't changed a bit in almost 100 years

    Those are really cool photos. I like that type of thing. History would have to be my favorite subject - next to goofing off!

    Yeah Its neat to see how the river has developed over the years...Can you imagine fishing on 33!? The old Ohio pen was located on 33 just past that power substation as you enter downtown, think about the water being up to the Nationwide arena...sort of scary. Here is another good pic of the Scioto before the lowhead dam was installed at the water plant (near the post office on 33)...It makes me wonder what the Scioto looked liked before the dam's went in....The other pic is the only pic I could find that pre-dates O'shay and Griggs..I believe it is the 5th ave. train bridge but It is labled "Fishinger mill bridge"....could this possibly be the old Fishinger bridge before Griggs was erected?

  18. i would bet the farm that second picture is around that 5th ave. area. these pictures are awsome guys! i use to live in the appartments on the river just north of lane ave. along riverside drive when i was 14 and 15 so the river and quarrys were my play ground for 2 years.

    "Flood of March 25, 1913 reached a stage of 24.6 ft, discharge; 74,500 ft3/s (fps) at Griggs Dam, 9 mi downstream from gage"


    74,000 FPS......Thats almost chilling.I don't think the scioto has gone over 20,000 fps in the past year.


    Cobras, I spent nearly 2 summers fishing the scioto from Griggs down when I was the same age. We would fish EVERYDAY...its sad to see the quarrys being developed, especially the one north of 5th....Man its amazing what they (developers) did to that area. Alot of good memories got bulldozed, if there is anyone that used to fish/mountin bike the scioto near 5th ave. you probably know what im talking about...And the saddest thing? Its been 10 years and only 1/5 of the lots have houses on them. The rest have "will build" signs in front...10 years later.
