[Miller residence]

Date: 1919
Creator: Shirkey, Marie
Description: Photograph of the Miller residence with damages sustained in the hurricane of 1919 in Corpus Christi. Inscribed on the back of the photo, "Front view of our house and the Miller house. X points to the wreckage that you don't see from the picture showing the backs of the houses and the sand bank as it is hid by the bank of sand. XX our house. XXX the Miller home. Notice how the mud has caked and cracked at XXXX. What you see in the yard there just above the no. 13 is a pool of oil that ruined things. Of course this was taken quite a little while after the storm. You see only the remains of what was once a beautiful lawn. The little tree you see at the side or our house and the Palm in front are all that kept it from floating away."
