  • Description

    Item title reads: "The Great Storm. Torrential rain - almost tropical in its intensity in a few moments turns streets into rivers."

    South London

    M/S of motor vehicles and a horse and cart approaching, towards camera, through flooded streets with a tram in the background. The water is half way up the wheels of the vehicles, quite deep. There is a shot of an abandoned hand pulled 'Hovis Bread' cart in rushing floodwater with houses in the background. A man walks along the pavement with floodwater rushing down the road. A car and an open top double decker bus make their way along, through the deep floodwater, turning in front of the camera.

    Note: July in England - wet weather as ever.
