Paris1910 Great Flood of Paris

What is now known as the Great Flood of Paris started in early 1910. On January 21st of that year, after months of heavy winter rainfall the Seine River started to rise rapidly. The flood reached its height on January 28th and then receded after that. The Seine returned to normal in early March. When all was said and done some 20,000 buildings were flooded as was half the Paris Metro.
What Paris looked like on January 29th, 1910 (view of Paris on January 29th, 1910 and another), postcard of Avenue de Versailles, Rue du Bac and Rue de Lyon during the flood.
Here are some postcards of the Great Flood of Paris:

Rue de Bourgogne near the Chambre des Députés. See the same view after the water started to recede.
