Description This black and white photograph is of a flooded street corner during the Flood of 1917. Hiener described this as the "temporary boardwalk in front of Warner Park," on or near McCallie Avenue.

A family with children walks across a dock-like walkaway built of wood in the left side of the photograph. In the center is the flooded street corner. Two horses with buggies are walking through the flooded waters, which come up to a little past their bellies. The building on the street corner has an advertisement painted on its wall for Jo Anderson Panpepsin.
