Title View looking north on snow covered Main Street, Breckenridge (Colo.)--1898-1899
Description View looking north on Main Street, Breckenridge, during the "Big Snow" of 1898-1899.
A man wearing a dark cape overcoat and hat (possibly Breckenridge resident Ezra Stewart) stands on top of a snow bank in front of the Arlington House and the Denver Hotel on the left. Across the snow-buried street is Breckenridge Masonic Lodge No. 47 and Fireman's Hall with belfry and hose drying tower. The snow reaches several feet, blocking portico and doorway entrances to some of the buildings.
