Looking way back in time:

In the fifties Montgomery Street and Mercer Street down from the Montgomery Street hill before the Turnpike would flood up to our waists. Needless to say this gave kids great joy and we waded right into it.

Deep snow melts would cause flooding of homes all over the Medical Center and Montgomery gardens vicinity. At that time the area was largely industrial with large bakeries, laundries, trucking companies and paper mills covering the area (just a further reflection).
