It looks like winter isn't quite done with us yet, so here's a peek at how they dealt with snow in the past! This 1908 photograph shows a horse-drawn snow roller on Church Street. Snow rollers were used to pack down snow to make it easier for sleighs to navigate the streets. This photograph came from an album kept by Dr. Edward R. Baldwin and shows the Saranac Laboratory prior to its expansion in the 1920s.
