1915 Edmonton Flood – Looking North on 100 Street in Rossdale

Edmonton has experienced many floods in its history but the 1915 flood is remembered as one of the worst.

Looking north on 100th street in June 1915 and exactly a century later…

Note the the trolley wires above the street but no sign of the tracks below the water.

Circa June 27-29 1915
