Snow Scenes in Real Photo Postcards

The latest forecast has it at rainy and 68 degrees on December 25. Since it doesn’t look like Chapel Hill is going to have a White Christmas, let’s enjoy snow in another way.

This photo shows several people gathered in a snowy downtown Hamlet street.

Hamlet must have had quite a winter in 1910.  Here is another snowy scene showing a railroad depot with snow between the tracks and billows of steam from the trains and the station’s chimney.

Most likely photographed in Chapel Hill, this 1924 postcard shows two monumental piles of snow.
