And the West is History: Men Shoveling Snow at Main and Sixth – 1916

Winter 1916 proved to be a fairly significant snow year in Durango. Here, men are on the roof of the Wetter Mercantile Co. shoveling snow to prevent a roof collapse. Wetter Mercantile was a longtime occupant of the northwest corner of Main Avenue and what is today College Drive. At present the Jean-Pierre Bakery & Wine Bar is located there. – Ed Horvat for Animas Museum, edhorvat@animasmuseum.org (Catalog Number: 04.29.59 from the La Plata County Historical Society Photo Collections)
