Today the City of Guelph issued a news release stating that "The banks of the Speed and Eramosa rivers are overflowing near Royal City Park and Silvercreek Park. Residents are asked to use caution when near creeks, streams, and rivers. Please keep pets leashed and away from river banks."
No doubt some residents experienced leaky roofs or flooded basements. I experienced neither and I'm grateful for that.
The photos I've selected are from the early 1900s. If you're interested in seeing more historic photos of floods in Guelph here are a couple of resources:
