1927 Flood Movie Screenshot: Bellows Falls 3

Date:

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 crowd expected a bridge washed out further up the river to carry this one out -- It held however." This image shows a group of people standing on one end of the Charlestown, N. H. and Bellows Falls, Vermont, bridge known as the Charlestown Toll Bridge. This image was taken from the other side of the bridge, as no one would have been on the bridge when they were expecting it to be wiped out. The caption describes a fear that a bridge washed out up stream would take this one out. That was a very regular fear and many bridges that were taken out in the flood were taken out by large pieces of debris from up the river, often times other bridges. A few leafless deciduous trees are visible on the far side of the river. A structure is also visible across the bridge.
