Check out this crazy photo. It’s almost hard to believe, but there was a huge flood in Georgetown back in 1918 and this is what it looked like (sorry for the blurry photo). Thanks so much to Adam at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. for getting this to us. We’re having a tough time digging up photos with the government shutdown.
