About this image
Two boys watch water over-topping the dam wall at Howden Reservoir.
The photographer's original caption reads:
'"WATER" Makes NEWS" Photo taken May Ist/38
Photo shows that the story of water shortage in Derbyshire is not all correct. Photo shows the great Derwent Valley Dams, which are actually overflowing. They supply Sheffield, Derby, Notts, Leicester and parts of Derbyshire. The White spray from the overflow rises in the air in most delightful rainbow colours across the valley.'
