Bert Scales was almost twenty-seven years old at the time of the 1937 flood. She lived with her husband, Charles, and two children, ages three and four, in a duplex at Thirty-fourth and Broadway in Louisville. When the floodwaters neared their home, the Scales evacuated it and moved in with her mother at Twenty-seventh and Market Streets in Louisville. They stayed there until they were told to leave because of approaching floodwaters. They moved to an apartment in the Highlands on Eastern Parkway. By this time there were eleven people who moved into the apartment. Mrs. Scales describes the flood areas and what it was like moving from one flood area to another. She also talks about living with eleven people in a three room apartment. After the flood receded, the Scales moved back to her mother's house. She tells about going back to her home after the flood and describes the damage which prevented them from moving in for four months. Mrs. Scales also tells about her brother-in-law's drug store on Forty-first Street and how the flood affected it. Index available.
