Damage & Destruction

Postcard of debris and damaged buildings, 
			Gainesville, Hall County, Georgia, 1936 Apr. 6

“The destruction was terrible, and was still going on. As we circled only a few hundred feet over the center of the city, the walls of buildings were crashing into the streets, and there were fires springing up all over the city.”

~ Lee Wiley, Eastern Airlines Pilot (quoted in W. M. Brice, A City Laid Waste, 1936, page 69)
