With Lancaster's proximity to the Nashua River, flooding along the banks is not uncommon. However, the Flood of 1936 was more severe. That year, many bridges in town were destroyed, isolating Lancaster Center for several days. Here, an unidentified resident walks the ropes across the river at the washed-out Vose bridge.
