Title Main Street in the snow
Object Name Print, Photographic
Catalog Number 1973.109.676
Description Winter view of Main Street in the early 1900s. There is snow on the ground, and the street is full of wagons with horses parked along each side. A horse-drawn wagon in the foreground is labeled Schauer's Groceries and Meats. This wagon is pulling two sleds with a child on each along the snow-covered street. Two dogs sit in the street across from the wagon pulling sleds. Other building signs include "Clothing", a seed store, "Tradewell Shoe and Clothing", a cigar and pool room and a second seed store. There are two additional copies of this print.
Notes This image was made into a postcard by the Longmont Museum in 2003, and the glass negative professionally scanned.
