Above there’s a photo of a field fire from the San Diego Air & Space Museum. They estimate that the photo was taken between 1939 and 1960.

From the Missouri State Archives I found this photo of a 1951 flood. That house is in danger of collapse.

The Florida Memory photo shows a photo from a 1965 hurricane.
