West Side Flood Waters

The floodwaters that inundated Vanport in May, 1948 were still affecting the city in the following weeks. This view of Northwest Portland shows flooding in the low lying areas, particularly the rail lines. The Broadway Bridge is in the upper right, the Steel Bridge ramp in lower right.
