The Belleville Flood Of March 1936
My mother was in the Belleville Hospital for my birth during the 1936 flood. Her doctor was Dr Cronk and he was living in the Quinte Hotel because his house and office on Coleman St at the walkway to the Footbridge was flooded. Mother always told everyone that I arrived floating down the Moira River on a cake of ice! Dad's barber shop on Front St was flooded as, of course, was our house on Octavia St.
