PO Johnstown PA

Johnstown, Pennsylvania, has been hit by floods in 1889, 1894, 1907, 1924, 1936 and 1977. “The” Johnstown Flood of legend was in 1889 and took more than 2,200 lives. Shown above, on the extreme right-hand side of the postcard, is the post office after the St. Patrick’s Day Flood of March 1936. And below, an earlier and more formal image of that post office.
