This photograph was taken from the Dayton Daily News building on Fourth Street. Looking east, the Davies Building, home of Newsalt's Jewelry Store, Reed Shoe Company, and Dayton Savings & Trust, is visible in the center of the photograph. The building on the left of the photograph was the home of the Dayton Loan & Credit Company Bank. At its height, flood waters in this area reached the second stories of the buildings pictured. People can be seen in boats and wading through the waters to safety.
