Floods On Sluice Lane 1952 - the cars

Floods on Sluice Lane Winteringham - a car ploughs through the water

Two intrepid cars brave the flood waters of the River Humber as the A1077 road is submerged again - a regular occurrence prior to the mid-1950s.

Just before 8:00 am on Friday 5th September 1952, and the two cars in these photographs make their way steadily through the floodwaters of the River Humber.  They are both staying well clear of the riverbanks - marked with marker posts on the left - though they would have been in almost as much danger by steering towards the reed beds on the right of the photograph.

The car in the lower picture is on ‘trade plates.’
