Birmingham Photo of the Day (15): Tornado of March 1901

On Monday morning, March 25, 1901, a tornado passed through Birmingham and Irondale and other areas. Sixteen people were killed in those two towns. 

A 26-page pamphlet was soon published documenting the event; the items below are from a third edition available in the Birmingham Public Library's Digital Collections. The work contains more photos and eyewitness accounts. An entry on the storm is also available on the BhamWiki site
