Centerville Bridge/Duck River Photo

I am seeking permission to print the above photo, frame it and place it in my living room. I was born in Duck River Tennessee

and this photo is very special to me.

Let me know if there is a fee involved.

Thank you

N. Johnson

Thanks for sharing photos. It was great that you captured shots BEFORE the flood. It's amazing how powerful water is.
