Title:
Flooded Bound Brook elevation
Date:
07/23/1938
Description:
Flooding from the Raritan River along the Main Street elevation in Bound Brook, N.J. The cars at the right are actually travelling under the bridge on the sidewalk because it is up higher than the roadway. There are onlookers around the edges of the elevation and up on the train tracks. Several boys sit on the handrails while another swims in the middle of the road. A man wades along the lefthand sidewalk, heading under the elevation.

This photo appears to be taken from South Bound Brook heading towards Bound Brook.
