Snowstorm damage in Northeast Ohio photograph
Description: Photographic postcard depicting fallen power lines, damaged after a storm that struck Cleveland and northeastern Ohio in November 1913. The heavy snowfall was part of an early winter storm that was called the "Great Lakes Hurricane," "the Ultimate Storm" and "the Big Blow." 18 to 25 inches of snow fell in two days across northeastern Ohio, covering telephone, telegraph and electrical wires. In the photograph, the visible street sign reads "Stevenson Rd NE" and appears to be in Cleveland, most likely at the intersection of that street with St. Clair Avenue. View on Ohio Memory.
