Details

This photo was taken during what's been described as the "grand-daddy of winter storms" in Oregon, in December of 1919. Not only was there a large amount of snow; after that the weather dropped well below zero for days in many areas. Some towns hit record lows, including Pendleton, which reached 28 degrees below zero.

Visible in the background is the statue of Lady Justice on top of the old County Courthouse. The statue is displayed in a glass case in the lobby of the current courthouse.
