Jantzen beach roller coaster in Portland flood of 1948

Long before "Superstorm Sandy" brought us the images of a New Jersey roller coaster submerged in the ocean, Jantzen Beach offered a similar glimpse. This great one of a kind snapshot taken from the Interstate Bridge shows much of the park underwater in the 1948 flood that destroyed Vanport.

View of Alexandria Louisiana

I'm unsure of the date this photo was taken but the large building near the middle is the Hotel Bentley which was constructed in 1908 so some time after that.
