1953 flood in NL

Post by DOUGAL » Thu Feb 01, 2018 6:52 pm

Saw this today on the Dutch news website, it's from the 1953 floods:

Scrowl down to the first film showing the waves hitting the coast.
It might still be on the bottom of the sea somewhere????

Cheers,

In the first video, that must be later than 53, that is definitely a later bus. Brake light position, rear window shape and appears to be pgsg, cool footage though still.
