When the photo well is running low, I pull out the old postcards from Tuscaloosa's past. This is Stallworth Lake. It was built in 1918 and located at the foot of river hill. It was apparently quite the gathering place for swimming and other amusements. There was a merry-go-round at some point in the thirties. The city filled it in in the 40s or 50s and used it as a landfill. In the last 20 years, they built baseball fields over it. Now it is the site of our new amphitheatre, currently under construction.
