Kirby Hill and Sandusky Plains under water
Description: The photograph shows flooded farm fields in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. The photographer stands on high ground and looks out over an elevated road surrounded by flooded fields. The water extends back to a line of trees in the distance. Fences lie partially submerged throughout the fields and two sets of telephone poles and wires run on either side of the road. Buildings and a railroad bridge can be seen in the distance past the row of trees. The farms are now park of the Harrison Smith Park in Upper Sandusky. Photograph by Harry Evan Kinley (1882-1969), a native of Upper Sandusky. Kinley was active in local events and organizations, and spent his professional career as a clerk at his father's department store, and later as a traveling salesman for the Marion Paper & Supply Company (1934-1962). He was also an avid lifelong photographer, and the bulk of the Harry Kinley Collection is comprised of glass plate negatives documenting the Kinley family, the city of Upper Sandusky and Wyandot County and surrounding areas.
