1890's Roswell,New Mexico Flood Photo

A very scare original photograph showing flood conditions in downtown Roswell,New Mexico. Clearly seen in the background is a Cigar Indian Statue in front of the Cigar Store. Directly in front of the Store is an advertising billboard for Haddix's Photo Studio. Likely the photographer who took this photograph. Other visible landmarks include: The California Store,Rosewell Drug and Jewelry Store and Real Estate advertising sign on pole for Alameda Heights offering Artesian Water. The roughnecks on the boat are also likely local shop owners. Rough town before the UFO's took over.
