We thought we'd share this image we found in the book The Great Flood by the Clarion-Ledger and Jackson Daily News. This picture caught our attention because of the large pile of library books damaged as a result of the flood hitting the library of Jackson Preparatory School!
|"About half of the 12,000 ruined books in the library of Jackson Preparatory School on Lakeland Drive were destroyed by the flood. The books were piled in the middle of a classroom" (107).|
For more pictures on the Easter flood, check out the aerial views on The Clarion-Ledger's website.
