In March of 1936, New England experienced extreme rainfall, resulting in one of the worst floods on record for the region. The Saco River was particularly effected.

Gannett Newspapers issued a special edition pictorial review of the disaster featuring images from their own photographers, as well as those of the Kennebec Journal. Aerial photography enhanced the public’s ability to witness the devastation caused by this iconic flood.
