Photograph of the Big Sioux

Date: 1978


Description: This photograph of the Big Sioux River was taken right where the river meets up with the Missouri near Riverside. Photos like this remind us of how constant the rivers are through Sioux City’s history. Even though humans change the landscape, building things like sidewalks and the Interstate highway visible in this picture, Sioux City was birthed because of its important location at the junction of three rivers: the Big Sioux, the Floyd, and the Missouri.


Donor: Carl and Nora Wells
