You might have heard that we are building an archive of images from this year’s flood (see links to some of the press coverage below). Well, Ellery Ammons has been working very hard and we’ve already got some of the images online!
So far, you can view images from 1913, 1937 and 2011, but keep checking back because more will be added each week. And, if you would like to add your images to the collection, there is still time.
