BMMI Episode 048: The Great Molasses Flood


I remember when my great grandpappy would sit me on his knee and tell me about the wave of syrup that cascaded over Boston. I would sit wonderstruck as he told me about the brave men, women, and children that struggled through that day and the following weeks. I gasped in awe at the fact that no movie had been made about this tragic day, to my knowledge, until now!

Take a trip with us back to 1919 Boston, MA where a most strange event is about to transpire. We stroll through the flooded streets with our various protagonists all trying to comprehend the unimaginable scenario that they are living through. This poster depicts what I imagine to be exactly what it must have looked like on that fateful day.
