1927 Flood Movie Screenshot: Proctor 4

Title:
1927 Flood Movie Screenshot: Proctor 4
Town:
Proctor
County:
Rutland
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 "The station at Proctor about to leave town." The image before this was captioned "Swollen torrents plunging through the Rutland Railroad cut, poured into Proctor Station. Tearing down over the hillside, the mad waters cut a path 60 feet deep, to the white marble bedrock." This image shows the water rushing out of the Railroad cut and into Proctor Station. Note the Proctor Station on the right of the image. Just below the hillside is a large white building, perhaps a factory or mill. The whole scene is engulfed in several feet of water and the water is spilling out into Proctor. Through the water is rushing through the area, the utility poles are still standing, however. Several trees are also visible.
