Description: I decided to put the following pictures on line. The pictures here tell the story, of the great flood on May 31, 1889. Was it the weather, all that heavy rain or was it a faulty dam that caused 20 million tons of water to crash into the city of Johnstown 12 miles down stream. The wall of water whe it hit Johnstown had a force equal to Niagara Falls.

all the men are wearing hats, why -- fayeweathergirl
Perhaps to keep the sun off of their heads? Or maybe to cover their thinning hair? Or maybe just because they were high fashion then? My guess is some of all three .. -- BeckyMarie
