Flood Waters In Winnipeg

Remember "The House that Nick Built"? Well, here it is under unusual circumstances

surrounded by the rampaging Red River

or shall we call it "Kildonan Lake". (Photo taken May 11th, 1950).


Here is another view of the flood - the Riverview district.

A glimpse of Inspector R .L St. John's residence on Maplewood Avenue would lead one to believe there is: "Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink" as in the poem "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner".
