Mail carriers on Main Street during the Big Snow of 1899

Jess Oakley and Eli Fletcher carry the mail down Main Street, Breckenridge, Colorado during the "Big Snow" of 1898-1899. The men volunteered to ski over Boreas Pass to Como, where the Denver, South Park and Pacific (DSP&P) train had been stopped. From February 5 until April 24, heavy snowstorms prevented DSP&P from delivering mail, fresh food and other supplies to Breckenridge. Quoted from handwritten text on the reverse: "US mail via snow shoe winter of the 78 day blockade". Note: Possibly the sons of the widows who ran the boarding house on Ridge Street, called the Colorado House (as of 2015, Fatty's Restaurant). One of the boys was Justen G. "Jess" Oakley, son of Almeda Peabody Oakley. A contribution was collected for him in the amount of $12.00.
