This photo shows a snow removal crew in Bessemer, Michigan dated March 6-9, 1926. The image was donated by Senator Walter Treuttner and appears courtesy the Archives of Michigan.
Be sure to check it out larger to get a sense of the size of these drifts. Assuming that guy is 5’5″, those drifts have to be every inch of 8 feet tall!
You can get a shovel-full of Michigan snowplowing stuff over on Absolute Michigan this morning as well!
