NW Hoyt & 10th, 1948

Pedestrians tread carefully on temporary scaffolding that keeps them above flooded NW Hoyt Street at 10th Avenue. The water is due to the Spring flood of 1948; it’s not much more than curb deep here but it’s a long way from the river. Most of the right side of the street is still intact today while the left side has all been replaced.
