"An undated 1920s view of a street flood on Geneva
St., looking towards Lewis St., just off Castle St. in
downtown Geneva NY. Up and down the street residents
are sloshing knee-deep through water. A man wearing
high galoshes gingerly wades across the street, with
assistance provided by the rope strung between
telephone polls."

Sign above side door at right reads "G.W. Fletcher.
Optometrist. Glasses Fitted and Repaired."

This photo was generously donated by Martha McGill. Many thanks for this interesting part of Geneva history.
