1953 Waco Tornado Video-Larsen Photos

All of the photographs in this video were contributed by Roy Larsen. Roy’s father was a mechanic at a garage at Eleventh and Webster on May 11, 1953. He took these amazing photographs a few days later. ALL OF THESE PHOTOS ARE COPYRIGHT PROTECTED BY ROY LARSEN.

All of the locations given were determined by Roy Larsen. He said, “Dad was a mechanic at a garage at 11th and Webter as the tornado went through. He took these photos a few days later. Some locations from my memory, some from Google Maps, many derived from 1948 Waco City Directory, some unknown.”

We are so thankful for Mr. Larsen, who captured this moment in time.
