Living near rivers is nice most years for they provide a constantly changing scene of river traffic and sometimes morning mistiness. But every once in a while rivers leave their banks and make deposits in towns. Wheeling has suffered from the excesses of the Ohio various times and this post card reminds of the 1907 flood which was one of the worst in the city’s history.
