THE FLOOD OF 26 APRIL, 1957
NORTH SIDE OF COURTHOUSE SQUARE

 

 

 

"Looking northeast of north side of square.  City Drug (left center of photo) had approximately 36 inches of water gushing through store shortly after photograph was taken.  All inventory was lost."

Hamilton National Bank is at the left edge of the picture.  My parents were in their store--Crain's Shoe Repair--on the corner at the east end of this block.  Their sandbagged front door was at an angle; hence, they had no flood damage.  Gerald's Feed Store, the store next door west, lost all of their inventory as water raged through that building.
