, Among the hundred or more views of last week's Salt Creek flood entered for the Evening News prize photo contest, the above is the winner. The
amateur artist who snapped this excellent photo Is Prof. E. H. Barbour, head of the department of geology at Nebraska university. This panoramic
view gives a comprehensive idea of the extent of the flood which swept over the Salt Creek bottoms last week, inundating a large residence district
and spreading out Into a watery expanse in places two miles wide. Mr. Barbour's picture was taken at 10 o'clock Thursday, July 10th. the morning
after the flood and when the water had receded only two or three feet from Its highest point. Mr. Barbour climbed the trestle work of the O street
viaduct and from its top he snapped his camera toward the west, the result being a clever conception of photographic art. The prize of $2, offered by
the Evening News, for the best flood picture, has been awarded to Mr. Barbour.
