Basement Walls


We've recently purchased a home built in 1910. There was a broken pipe that flooded the basement for 1 day (water was almost 1ft high).

This is how the basement walls are now. I'm not sure if this was caused by the water or not. We're thinking about finishing the basement, but would like to start with the walls first.

By looking at the pictures:
- Do you think this is normal?
- Anything to be worried about?
- How to treat/insulate walls?
- Paint?

Edit: These "deformations" are only seen at the bottom 1/2 of walls. The top seems to be intact, not signs of deterioration.
Thank you.
