10th August 1950. View shows number 15 Brown's Place off Church Street. The living room shows flood damage and a water line can be seen above the fire place. A table is on the left with crockery, tinned food and a teapot. A washboard is propped up by the table. A childs metal racing car and a cupboard with a cheese grater, cricket bat, a tray and dish on top are visible. The flood was caused by an open stream which ran from Beckett's Park to the top of Station Parade to overflow. The volume of water was such that instead of channelling into the culvert below Station Parade the stream burst its banks. The houses on Brown's Place were at a lower level and were flooded before the water drained into the River Aire.
