"The Flood May 22nd 1922" is written on the back of the photo. The name and the Roberts Street address of the original owner of the photo is also witten on the back.

The street hasn't changed too much today and, apparently, still floods after very heavy rain! The garage on the left is, surprisingly, still a garage with the name of 'Service Engineering Co., Grimsby' on the door. The firm is listed in Kelly's 1930 Directory as being in Roberts Street, so it has a long and continuous history.
