Removing the Snow in 1918


From the February 21, 2018, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1918, 100 Years Ago.

"The city authorities have had a force of men again at work at the task of removing the snow from the street corners and other places along the highway.

"The officials fear that when the thaw hits the unusually large amount of snow, that there will be many basements flooded, and other damage done, if it is allowed to remain.  The snow is being hauled away to spots where there will be no danger of destroying property when it starts to melt."

An unusually large amount of snow in the winter 1918.  And, removing it evidently by hand.
