Storm damage

Document reference: (DSIR4/3628) Damage to structures by flood and gales during winter 1952-53

Zoom in

What damage can be seen on the left hand side of the building? Can you see the figure in the window? What are they looking at? How do they feel standing inside the house?

The right side of the house has been completely destroyed. Can you describe what is left? How might the man standing inside feel?

The rest of the scene has been reduced to rubble and dirt. Can you describe what you can see in this section of the picture? Try to use the senses to add detail.
