Description: Postcard from W. B. Johnston to George Pendexter discussing the flood of 1908 and the possibility of another flood in the spring. The photograph on the reverse side shows the Battle Creek Fire Department during the flood of 1908; most of the firemen are holding long oars as they sit on the back of a wagon. The wagon itself is being pulled by two horses and has the title "Fire Department" written on the side; the water level rises around a half a foot on the wheels.
