Image from the Archives Collection

Frederick John Date Collection. Series 2. Album 1.

The photographer is unknown. The location is Valdez, Alaska. The town of downtown Valdez has an average annual snowfall of around 300 inches.

Reason for Selection: This scene is typical for a Valdez winter. A little snow could not hinder the local residents from attending to their daily activities. It clearly shows that life goes on despite the elements. (KRH)
