"This factory was the scene of one of the quaint incidents caused by the floods of 1903. When the waters subsided, one of the owner's houseboats was found stranded on top of his bungalow! History doth not relate how it was dislodged from its inconvenient perch. Such excitements are not likely to occur in Kashmir again."
From 'The land of regrets: a Miss Sahib's reminiscences' (1909) by Isabel Fraser Hunter. The book mostly has India but for a brief de-tour to 'Asiatic Venice'.
