Throughout recent history, wintry weather and heavy snowfall has always brought out professional and amateur photographers alike, and those living and working in the city of Washington were no exception. The plethora of vintage photographs taken on the city’s streets have now made their way into various archival collections, saved for future generations that may or may not experience the levels of snowfall once experienced by Washingtonians in the past.
