Flood Damage 1939

These were the scenes after a cloudburst on 7th August 1939. Rails and sleepers at cemetery corner Loftus were undermined by the floods; the image on left shows a section of the road leading to South Loftus. The images are taken from a collection of Northern Echo newspaper cuttings.
