Photographic Views of the Inundated Sections of the City

The photographic views included in this book illustrate the greatest and most destructive flood ever experienced in Grand Rapids. The Grand River began to overflow its banks on Thursday night, March 24th 1904, steadily rising until 6 o'clock in the morning of Monday, the 28th, when it registered 19.6 feet.

The sales of this souvenir of the flood originally went to the relief fund that was created to help the more than fourteen thousand people who were affected by the flood.

This book is a reprint of the original book.
