Flood: Pumping out the Grand River
Pumping equipment at the west end of Lyon St., where it meets the Grand River, works to pump water from the basements of riverfront buildings. The water flowed down the steps leading to the promenade along the river front, also under water. In the background yellow tape indicates the area off-limts, and sandbags are visible in the upper right of the photo.
