19.2: Meanders on the Assiniboine River Near the Junction with Birdtail Creek, 1956 Photo

Abandonment is still imminent at 7 but at 8 breakthrough has recently occurred; water now flows in a direct route across the meander neck as well as round the meander. This photo was taken from a greater height than figure 19.1 and consequently covers a larger area at a smaller scale. A cut off appears imminent 9, and existing cut offs can be seen to the north (10,11,and 12) and to the south 13. On this photo there is a very clear distinction between the dark tones of the cut offs and the light tone of the sediment-laden main channel.
