March 1962 Snowstorm

Here's a look at Wyalusing's Main Street in the grip of a late winter storm that appears to have dumped about a foot of snow on the community, based on the snow accumulated on the roof of the partially obscured car in front of the Wyalusing Hotel. There appears to be just one other car on the street which is seen on the right in the distance. Based on the snow piles along the curbs, the street has been plowed but it appears to have been a losing battle. This photo was snapped by former Rocket-Courier editor Bill Keeler in March of 1962 when Peoples State Bank was still located on Main Street and Thomas's Meat Market was next to the Wyalusing Hotel in the building that was most recently home to Miller's Pharmacy.
