Title:
1927 Flood Movie Screenshot: Waterbury 6
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. The clip of the movie that this shot came from is prefaced with the caption, "Houses swept from foundations and carried several blocks at Waterbury, Vermont---32 lives lost." This shot is of multiple houses washed into a street in Waterbury, a person riding a tractor down the middle of the road, a utility pole leaning over, and water damage in the street. In the left foreground the roof of a house is visible leaning into the road, which means that it must have been damaged for it to be in the road and as low as it is. The house on the right is dark and difficult to see much of except that is is laying on it's side, The image can be seen more clearly in the movie. Behind that house is another house which, while not knocked onto it's side, is obviously severely damaged and has been carried into the street. It is difficult to see whether or not the utility pole is behind or in front of the house but there is a utility pole that has is leaning to the right. The three houses and the utility pole indicate that, relative to this photo, the flood water was flowing from left-to-right.
