It’s a nasty, wet and cold day today and it looks like it was also pretty soggy the day this picture was taken in 1910:
This image was in the Morehead box I was talking about yesterday and what interests me about it is the dog, walking along with the man on the left. (Once you see a dog, apparently you start seeing them everywhere.) Is it the same dog or a different one? Impossible to say but I like to think it was a different one, perhaps a wary rival for the workmen’s lunch scraps.
The second shot, of the overflow, belongs in your file on drainage …
Drainage is a mythological concept in Harris County.
Isn’t it always soggy in Houston? 😎
Boy, it sure feels like it!
It is so dry here in the California central coast I am ALMOST remembering the great floods of the 70’s with some fondness….
