This black and white photo shows the Altach district of Oberndorf in the 1899 floods. Oberndorf experienced the worst floods in its history that year. The Salzach rose to a level of 10.3 m, and the boatmen’s homes were flooded up to the first floor. Following this, a decision was made at the turn of the 20th century to move this district to the other side of the river.
