Photos the 1936 Great Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Flood

1936 St. Patrick's Day flood / 60 killed

Nice Collection of photographs of the 1936 Great Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Flood / These belonged to a person that was in the flood / rare images of a terrible catastrophe

Civic organizations in the city, with financial backing from the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County and the Chamber of Commerce had been asking the Federal Government for help with flood control for almost thirty years. They had formed committees to lobby government officials and found themselves caught in political processes that ultimately resulted in the city and its residents sustaining devastating damage. In August 1935, the United States House of Representatives passed a bill for nine flood control reservoirs to be built above Pittsburgh. However, while the Senate debated this bill, the tremendous 1936 flood occurred. The Congress did not actually appropriate any funds for the project until the 1937 flood which threatened, but spared the city and went on to devastate the Ohio River Valley.
