Transcription"The lower picture shows the earthen levee being built to a height of 15 feet by the main contractor, Tommy Hellander of Fargo. The flood wall was originally only eight feet high and generally failed to hold the rampaging Heart from overrunning the Syndicate and Dogtown sections of Mandan in floodtime." - Caption with image featured in article "Concrete Wall, 15-Foot Dike Built To Halt Mandan Floods", Fargo Forum & Daily Tribune, Oct. 2, 1949, p 9.
