             Hurricane of 1938 in Milford, Massachusetts   

Most of the photos on this page were taken by Doug Taylor of
Mendon. The fourth, fifth and sixth are  from the Worcester Telegram
website and sent to me by Peter Metzke of Melbourne, Australia.
1938 was a bad weather year. There was a flood in July and the
hurricane arrived in September. Doug Taylor photos scanned and
made available for this site by Paul Doucette of Mendon.
