Earlier flood Photos captured the extent of flooding in the
City of Richwood.

Some of these pictures were during an early flood. My dad, Willard, "Bubber" McCroskey had them. He was born in 1916, but he said they were from an earlier time than that. The one with the horse and wagon was taken in front of where Hewitt's Motor is now. The last one is my Dad with my mother, Helen, when he was home on leave during WWII.

The horse and wagon was taken in front of where Hewitt's Motor is now
Early flood-warning systems for people living along Cherry River undoubtedly went from horseback to high-tech.
