1936 Flood in Hancock


Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information

   



Main Street, Hancock, near the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue, March 1936

Marian Golden reported that her father, the photographer, told her that the 1936 flood was higher, more rapid, more intense that the 1985 flood. He said it was cleaner, in the sense there was only mud left behind, rather than the oily, polluted garbage that later floods have brought.
