Description: Photograph of buildings along the shoreline surrounded by debris after the Corpus Christi hurricane of 1919. Inscription on the back of the photo reads, " Somewhere among the wreckage there is a paved street running back to the bay and this street ran along by the Seaside Hotel where the pretty salr cedar arbor was and back toward the Pavilion Hotel out over the bay. At the X is the Nueces Hotel and what you see on this side is the Horne (?) Apartments. This takes in about two blocks and over. All this, you know was full of buildings."
