    • Photos from the Flood of 1973

    • MARY LOU MONTGOMERY marylou.montgomery@courier-post Erika Dwyer was going through some old photos and thought again just as she was about to throw out these 1973 flood photos. It is fun to see how the landscape has changed in the last 37 years. The grain terminals still held a prominent spot where Glascock’s Landing is today. Looking close you will see parking meters and buildings that were long ago torn down. The new Mark Twain Museum is in the old Kline’s building at North Main and Center streets. While these street scenes seem familiar to Baby Boomers and beyond, boats at Main and Broadway must seem strange to those who have come of age since the flood wall’s completion in 1993.
