It snowed again here in Vermont overnight, which turns our thoughts to all our friends in the Boston area that has received close to 100 inches of snow already this winter. The National Weather Service announced that the total snowfall in the City this year has been 68 inches above the average yearly total of 31 inches.
In the spirit of the storm shown here is a set of vintage winter car related photos from the Leslie Jones Collection at the Boston Public Library. The women clearing off their car windows while it was snowing was a popular theme with Jones.
The only photo with its date and location identified is the second one below that was taken in March of 1933 on Joy Street, in Beacon Hill, a historic community in the City. The next image shows men shoveling snow at night on the street under the elevated train tracks.
The bottom photograph shows the Egleston Theatre that is located in the Egleston Square neighborhood of Jamaica Plain, a section of Boston. Tell us all you know about any of the snow-covered cars in this series or the location of the photos. Later in the week look for another feature showing more winter scenes in the city.
