The Bauer and Weil General Merchandise Store located on Front, or Water Street, on the banks of the Red River in Alexandria, Louisiana. This busy scene is probably around 1880 to 1890. The levee covers the original location of this store today. This was probably the largest business establishment in Alexandria
during the late 1800s.
