Our colorizing studio has suddenly become very busy, with among other projects, an upcoming tv documentary. We’ll keep you all posted as the date approaches. Now to our “Before & After” for today.

The year is 1888. Brooklyn, New York is digging out from under the Great Blizzard of ’88 – that’s 1888. These children are venturing out of their rowhouse to play in snow drifts that are twice their height.

The shocker is – the drifts we’re looking at here, would have been among the smaller ones. Snow drifts from the Great Blizzard were reported to average between 30-40 FEET! Snow blown by 40 mph winds dumped up to 4 feet of snow over an area stretching from New York-New Jersey up through New England. As they say in Brooklyn, “That ain’t hay”.
