Flooding in Kingston – 60 years ago

Kingston experienced quite a rainfall on Friday July 29th, which resulted in a lot of flooding throughout the downtown. A similar phenomenon occurred just over 60 years ago on Wednesday July 4 1951. That day, 118mm of rain fell on Kingston.

These photographs, taken by George Lilley, show the flooding throughout Kingston.
