Salt Water Natatorium Flood, 1912

Very interesting shot of the flooded Salt Water Natatorium at Forsythe park, dated 1912. The pavilion would eventually be lost to a fire, but it would be another flood, the 1932 flood, that would ultimately take out the natatorium. It was decided Monroe needed a levee system and the pool was covered over.
