Title Teenagers wading in flood
Date 07/24/1938
Year Range from 1931
Year Range to 1941
Description Three girls and a boy wade through the flood water that covered a road between Millstone and Griggstown, N.J. This photo appears to have been taken on Canal Road by the Delaware and Raritan Canal. The D&R Canal is visible to the left of the trees in the far left corner.

This photo was likely taken after 2009.1.343 and .345 as the waders are now much closer to the camera and the cars are gone.
