The owner of this old sedan seems quite pleased that he averted disaster by practically parking his car on his porch, as well he should. Although the Mississippi River still overflows it’s banks on a regular basis, the Great Flood in the Spring of 1927 was particularly horrendous. He was fortunate that both his home and car escaped unscathed during this disaster, although it looks to us like he had a real close call. Comments about the make, model and year of his lucky land cruiser are most welcome. Photo courtesy of the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.
