Most of the photos in this gallery were taken November 11-14, 2011. If you wish to share a photo here, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. When I created this gallery, I simply called it Black Bottom because that’s what my Dad called this area. I knew parts of it were called Ellis Addition and Deskins Addition, but I’ve never understood exactly where one stopped and the other one began. When I was a kid, I assumed Black Bottom got its name for the black mud that would accumulate there after a flood. However, according to Paul Gaylock (see his comment below) Black Bottom got its name from the black ash and cinders dumped there by the power plant.
