It is down just east of the old cannery building. Not good on my streets, but there is a lawyer, can't tell you which one it is down there. If you go to the east of the photo you go right down to the train station. Yes, both of the buildings are still there.

I'm trying to figure out if that big snow pile is a snow drift from the wind or if snow was piled that high.
Are you saying the building on the right is still there?
Any guess to the exact year?

Note the tree like wood post supports below the guys shoveling snow ...

while I'm not quite that old, I remember having to shovel snow off the roofs of our out buildings during some winters out Belmont way.

Down north from the Art Center.

The snow fall that I remember was the one back in the 1950's that collapsed the roof of the Park Street School Play Shed while Beach Patton was up on it trying to shovel off the heavy load before that happened.

I guess you folks sort of got it, but here's the specifics for posterity:
The location is 3rd Street, just north of Cascade, looking at the tail end of the Davidson Building and the east end of the Union Building. There is now another building north of the Davidson Building, so you can't quite see this much of the Union Building from that location. However, you can now see *through* the Union Building from this location, thanks to all the new glass in the recent remodel for Columbia Title Company.

Yes Bill, 1950 was a terrible winter for snow and ice. We skiied off the roof of our house that year. I know the house roof got shoveled that year and the snow was up to the eaves after it was shoveled, so we were up there with skis and sleds going off of it, clear out to Fir Mtn. Road. Oh, how we made our fun in our youth. Never heard a kid saying "I'm bored, like you have now."

This must be the Building that one day would collapse from too much snow on the roof?

Never see a good snow storm again, huh? :-)

The men shoveling snow off the roof, have a big job. Looks like a shovel full made a highlight for the man's head in the foreground.
