Galveston 1915 Hurricane Photographs, 1915 | University of Houston Libraries
These original materials are available in Special Collections.
The Galveston Hurricane Photograph collection comes from a scrapbook of pictures taken by Rex Dunbar Frazier, a Stone & Webster Engineering representative called in to collect storm damage data and photographs.
Photos were removed from an acidic scrapbook for preservation purposes, yet folder captions were copied exactly from those provided. Folder captions below have been abbreviated as necessary.
The photos date primarily from August 18, 1915, although many are undated. Later photos show repairs. Dated photographs have been filed chronologically, and undated photographs have been loosely grouped into categories of Buildings/Streets, Railroads (general), Interurban Railroad, Causeway/Temporary Trestle, Drifting/Damage, Misc. People, and Misc.
