All here at the Colligan History Project are eagerly awaiting Hamilton’s forthcoming Great Miami River flood centennial (see schedule below). The public response has been tremendous, & the line-up of programs and events promises to be truly impressive.
Characterizing the imaginative response of local residents to the commemoration, historical enthusiast and talented shutterbug Brian D. Lenihan has created a stunning new series of images, recapturing the vantage of Hamilton photographers during the flood of 1913. Some of you have been lucky enough to see these already, but the Colligan History Project is proud to present them online for the first time ever (see link below). I’m sure you’ll agree, Brian has captured the city’s changing face in an original and unique way, as well as highlighting the flood’s devastating destruction.
