After a wet, late winter, March 6, 1908. The flooded farm fields between Pratt and Touhy Avenues looking southwest from the North Shore Channel route. The property owners, sisters Mary E. and Julia P. Turner, lived in the house on the left. Wet farm fields were frequent throughout the area along the north-south route of the eventual channel.
