Title:
1927 Flood Movie Screenshot: Waterbury 7
Town:
Waterbury
County:
Washington
State:
Vermont
Date:
1927-11
Description:
This image is a screenshot from a movie made using actual footage from the 1927 flood: This image is from a clip of the 1927 Flood Movie that begins with the caption "Waterbury, Vt. This town was one of the hardest hit by the flood. Water was 18 feet deep in the main business street. The fire station floated out into the center of the street." This image, as is described in the caption, shows the main business street in Waterbury, now modern-day Route 100. Note the building in obstructing the street, which is apparently the fire station, and note also the car in the road to the right of the fire house. The utility poles are still standing, lining the right of the street. Note also the mud on the left of the road. Several leafless elm and other deciduous trees are visible. A mountain is visible in the background.
