Plaza area at the Teddy Roosevelt Memorial, Roosevelt Island situated in the Potomac River across from Washington DC, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and accessible from Arlington VA via the George Washington Memorial Parkway (northbound).

I don’t know why the fountains are not working. Possibly due to National Park Service budget constraints.

Potomac River, upriver from Harpers Ferry WV. Harpers  (no apostrophe) Ferry is the eastern most town in WV at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers. West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia all meet at this point. Harpers Ferry is known for abolitionist John Brown’s raid on the U.S. Armory in 1859.

Susquehana River
This is about 2-3 miles up river from where the 464 mile long Susquehana empties into the Chesapeake Bay at the Concord Point Light House in Harve de Grace MD.

This is part of the 6-7 mile long tidal part of the river. The tide flow is blocked by the Conowingo hydroelectric dam at that point (barely seen in this photo is one of the electric transmission towers originating at the dam)

Once the Virginia landscape descends from the mountains in the west much of the coastal plain is very low lying. Shallow swampy areas such as this are frequently found alongside rural roads. This is one such swamp that is likely no more than 6”-12” deep, if that.

Continental Lint Cleaning plant, Swansea SC
Cotton (lint) must be separated (ginned) from its seeds, dirt and plant stems before it can become one’s tighty-whiteys. The cotton gin, invented in 1793 by Eli Whitney, does this mechanically and revolutionized the cotton industry…along with contributing to Southern slavery and ultimately the U.S. Civil War.
Daniel Pratt formed his company in 1833 to manufacture lint cleaning machines, cotton gins. Through a series of mergers it became the Continental Lint Cleaning Company in 1899 and with additional mergers a world-wide force in cotton processing when, in 1986, the Continental Eagle Company was formed.
I’m guessing this facility, or at least its sign, pre-date the last merger making this building almost 30 years old. The equipment on the right has a newer look to it, however.
