This past Friday’s late-season snowfall sent me looking for old pictures of winter weather. The earliest color picture I could find is the one below. It was taken in the middle of Pullman street in front of where the Bradley Post Office is now located. I’m less certain of the date it was taken than for many of the other pictures on this site, however. The date of the late 1940s was arrived at by weighing that (1) this is early color slide film, and (2) the date of the vehicles in the photo, one of which is only partially visible, and shows clearly only at great magnification.
Below is a photo taken from approximately the same place and angle on the (much prettier) afternoon of March 9, 2008:
