Tornado in St Cloud

A tornado is like some raging black devil conjured from an evil genie’s magic bottle in order to wreak death and destruction across the land. Or so started an article in the 1982 World of Knowledge annual on the tornado which came on 14 April 1866 to the town of St Cloud on the west bank of the Mississippi. This astonishing picture by Graham Coton depicts the havoc caused by the tornado in the station yards of the Manitoba Railway.
