Great Flood of '37: Two survivor stories
On January 26, 2012, Dad was interviewed by Mike Schell of Fox19 in Cincinnati Ohio about the Great Flood of 1937.

The house were Dad lived as a boy - 3538 Riverside in Cincinnati.

Less than a mile from the Anderson Ferry, which has been in business since 1817 (and is still running!)

Good Times on the Ohio River
even after the Great Flood and During the Great Depression!

Great Flood of 1937 - The house didn't survive this one.
The property is now part of Riverside Playground.

What a catch!
