West Side flats during spring flood

Prone to flooding, the West Side flats made for challenging living conditions. By the late 1950s, city leaders decided to turn the Flats into an industrial park, protected by improved levies. By the late 1960s, the neighborhood was cleared for redevelopment.

Date: March, 1916
