This black and white photograph shows the aftermath of the 1951 flood at 1526 North Kansas Avenue in Topeka, Kansas. The extremely heavy rains during June and July caused some of the greatest flooding ever seen in Kansas history. These high waters affected all the area river basins of the Kansas, Neosho, Marais des Cygnes, and Verdigris Rivers.
