This real photo postcard features two houses after a flood. One of the houses is barely out of the water's reach but likely was flooded as there is debris washed up around the first floor and covering the ground outside the house. There is a boat moored in the flood water. The second house is surrounded by water and the water level covers the porch and extends up beyond the window sills of the first floor. Beyond this house there is nothing but water. The card is in very good condition.
The card has not been sent through the mail, however the back of the card is covered with a pencil message that is filled with misspellings and grammatical errors, but is still sweet.
