The Cumberland River experienced a major flood event after Christmas of 1926 and into 1927. This photograph shows a general view of the flooded area between Woodland Street and the Sparkman Street Bridge (aka the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge). The river gauge showed 56.0' that day. East Nashville and downtown Nashville were completely inundated. This was the largest flood in the last 100 years.
