Flood Survivors

After the Flood

There aren't many pictures of the day after the Flood, since people were too busy saving their lives and helping others. Besides, most cameras and photo equipment was lost in the Flood. Within days, though, hundreds of press photographers "invaded" the valley. Most of these photos were taken at least a week or later after the flood.

Many of these photos are from "stereo views" that made photos look three-dimensional. Learn more about stereo cards and stereopticons on this page.
