Photograph of Fitzmaurice Street in flood during the very wet year of 1891. The water has not completely covered the entire street but the lower lying areas have already been inundated. The photographer is standing just to the north of the Fitzmaurice - Kincaid Street intersection, with the verandah of the Prince of Wales Hotel just to their left.
A note on the photograph's mount states "20 June 1891. 3:30p.m. 29 feet 10."
