1913  LAWRENCEBURG  FLOOD

Lawrenceburg Levee Break-1913.jpg (201173 bytes)
Spot where levee broke

   By January 15, the great flood of 1913 had reached 62' at Lawrenceburg, Indiana but the people of that city, remembering the flood of 1907 when the water had reached 66' and the levee held, did not even bother to move their belongings to a higher elevation.
   On the 14th a slide occurred between the main flood gate and the Lawrenceburg gas plant. Two watchmen were assigned to keep an eye on it during the night. Around midnight on the 16th the ground gave way a short distance from where watchman Henry Schinaman was sitting. Immediately a chasm opened below him and water began rushing thru. Henry ran to the Newtown engine house and rang the bell, alerting the residence of the flood. 
   It was later determined that the 60' wide by 80' long and 20' deep opening was made by water seeping through the levee which softened the soil at the base, plus the incessant rain, caused the earth to slide out due to its own weight.

   There is no date on this postcard so I a guessing at which flood this was taken, it could be the 1907 flood. Any help out there?

GHOST  CITY  BOOK

   The following images are from a somewhat rare book that was put together by M. O. Whitney who was a resident of Lawrenceburg, Indiana during the catastrophic flood of 1937. He apparently took all these photographs himself and rented a airplane so he could take pictures from overhead. With the help and support from his wife he did all this while his home was being destroyed. I will not be putting up every picture in the book, some are more or less repeats of others.
   I have some postcards which were published by The Whitney Studios of Lawrenceburg, There obviously must be a connection.
