☞ REMEMBER: After the Snow on Lenox c. 1900

An old photo taken sometimes during the turn of the previous century shows what the aftermath of a major snowstorm looked like uptown 100 years ago.  There apparently was around 15 inches altogether at the time the image was taken and the above piles were located just north of 125th Street on Lenox Avenue.  There does not seem to be much of this stuff around for January 2012  but most should expect one more big storm by the time February ends.

  1. Great photo, by the look of those snow piles, they where shoveled by hand.
