A view of the flood that occurred in 1912 during the construction of the William M. Rice Institute. It shows Main Street, looking north from the Harris Bayou Bridge. There is a wooden house on the left-hand side of the photograph, with two men standing on a walkway nearby. They are looking over the damage, with one of the two standing at the water’s edge. There are a few other structures in the background, including a water tower, and a two-story house. Written on the lower left-hand corner: "Main Street looking north from Harris Bayou Bridge, E. W. Irish Photo Co.". Original resource is a black and white photograph.
