HISTORICAL PHOTO SUBMISSION--The landslide that cut off Bonners Ferry isn' t their first brush with natural disaster. During the flood of 1949-50, the town of Bonners Ferry was surrounded by water from the Kootenai River, which is now controlled by the Libby Dam. In this view looking north-northeast, the snow-covered Purcells are seen in the background. Photo by amateur photographer Anne Cole, who at that time owned the Kootenai Grain Co. with her husband Gene. This was taken from the DC-3 of the Idaho National Guard.
