Stranton Floods 1900

What we know about this image :

The view looks up Elwick Road and on the right behind the wall is Greenbank, once the home of JW Cameron. Waldon Street is on the right after the wall and across Elwick Road in front of the large building which is now Stranton Social Club. The terrace of houses on the right is Bathgate Terrace, Elwick Road and beyond them on the right is Holt Street, Kilwick Street and then York Road.

The quite regular floods, although a nuisance, were obviously quite an attraction.
