Flood of 1936: looking east from Travelers Insurance Company, Hartford

Brick buildings line the flooded streets. A building at the left has a fire escape. A building at the right has a cupola. Another has a smokestack. Men stand at the edge of the floodwaters. Automobiles and barrels are nearby. Tanks, trees, and buildings in East Hartford are partially submerged in water in the background beyond the flooded Connecticut River. Inscribed on back: "East from 8th floor of Trav./ Grove St. in center / Film #9 3/20/36."
