The 1913 Dayton Flood on Google Maps

Dayton Flood 1913 - Postcards Map

In 1913 Dayton, Ohio was hit by three major storms in a matter of a few days. The rainfall caused the Great Miami River watershed and its tributaries to overflow. As a result downtown Dayton experienced flooding of up to 20 feet deep.

The Dayton Metro Library 1913 Flood Postcard Collection contains over 60 postcards that show images of the flood. Geoslideshow has put together this Google Map of the postcards showing the locations of the scenes depicted.
