Photo without caption: 1-31-14


Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure that this photo was taken in the aftermath of the 1977 Johnstown flood. I remember seeing this little Scotty stuffed into the wall of the old Swank Refractories building in the Woodvale section of the city. I remember too,rows of cars piled up submerged in the Conemaugh river: it was eerie seeing cars underwater with their headlamps and blinkers on. I also remember some stacked on end against telephone poles. Terrible flash flood that claimed over 77 lives. Every time I pass this building I can still see this image!
