[Damage from storm of 1900 in Galveston]

Description:

Photo on cardboard mat. Damage from storm of 1900 in Galveston. A group of men (11) are searching a pile of wooden rubble left behind after the storm. Back of photo reads: Galveston, Texas, October 7, 1900. APPEAL FOR THE HOMELESS OF GALVESTON. Does the evidence here portrayed bring to you a thought of the distressing need of Galveston's homeless survivors? Do you not feel that it is your duty to contribute your portion to the worthy work of procuring shelter and household goods for those who are now without shelter? Do you realize that a small sum from each sympathizer will aggregate an amount sufficient to meet this great and pressing need? All money should be remitted to MISS CLARA BARTON, President, American National Red Cross, Galveston, Texas. (Picture) No. 33 Remarks- Sunday morning getting out the dead
