We’ve all seen the horrific photos of the 1937 flood which covered nearly the entire city with frigid, polluted water and snow. Here’s a new photo I had not seen before showing a section of Downtown underwater on January 25, 1937. While the city survived the flood, the same can’t be said of its fight with the wrecking ball in the second half of the 20th century.
Leave a comment below with the location depicted here and your guess as to how many of the hundreds of buildings seen in the photo above can still be seen today. We’ll have an update next week with a modern-day view and some added history.
