1906 Flood Damage at James North Works


This is Old Hyde's 50th post.

There is a "water" theme amongst CDPB bloggers today. So where's the water here? Well it is April 1st, so maybe I'm fooling you! But if you are reading this after 12 noon then the joke will be on me.

Here the water has been and gone. In May 1906 Hyde suffered severe flash floods. This picture shows the damage caused at the James North Works.

  6. Some of the US blogs are showing the recent flooding in the midwest/south, and the UK sure had their share last summer. Very topical!

  7. Brilliant of you in depicting water in another manner! I can imagine the woes that water bring, lately being the plights of Hurricane Katrina's victims.
