Why add the src by adding to the Attributes collection? The HtmlImage class exposes the Src property which you can assign to:

anchorCarousel.Src = Server.MapPath("/Assets/images/products/mfglogos/3M_LOGO.jpg")

Side comment: Same as the above:  You shouldn't have to do the add attribute logic in order to set the anchor's HREF--there should be a property named Href which can use.
