Expo remembers great Paris flood

Exhibition marks 100th anniversary of Paris's huge flood which turned many of the capital's streets into canals

A HUNDRED years ago Paris suffered its worst flood since 1658 - stations under water, drains and electricity disrupted, 20,000 residential buildings flooded and streets turned into canals.

In 1910’s grande inondation (big flood) the Seine burst its banks, pouring down roads, railways and sewers.

An exhibition relives it at the Galérie des Bibiothèques - Ville de Paris, with photos, postcards, posters, art, cuttings and film footage.
