The Great floods Johnstown Pennsylvania 1889

Johnstown Pennsylvania 1889 - The floods killed 1000's. This particular photo is of  the John Schultz house at Johnstown, PA after the flood. Neatly skewered by a huge tree uprooted by the flood, the house floated down from Union Street to the end of Main. Six people, including Schultz himself, were inside the house when the flood hit. All of them survived.
