There is INCREDIBLE newsreel footage of the Flood of 1936 in Pittsburgh on The Odd, Mysterious & Facinationg History of Pittsburgh.
To compliment the rawness of the video, two sets of images have been uploaded to a page named Flood of 1936. My Aunt Flora Nash collected those images from various newspaper from towns along the river. Those images were pasted in a scrapbook without identifying their origin. Towns along the Ohio, Mon , and Allegheny Rivers are exhibited: Ambridge, Apollo, Coraopolis, Dravosburg, Emsworth, Etna, Homestead, Kittanning, Montgomery Island, McKees Rocks, New Kensington, North Vandergrift, Oakmont, Tarentum, Turtle Creek, Verona, West Bridgewater, West Brownsville, Wheeling, and more.
