Manuscript by Elmer Clifton Peabody

Elmer C. Peabody dedicated this typed manuscript to his granddaughters in 1952. In it, he shares his memories of the "Big Snow" of 1898-1899 as a fourteen year old boy living in Breckenridge. Of particular interest is Elmer's description of "snow bikes". Also, he tells about mail delivery and transportation by skis, low food supplies and Mrs. Kaiser's cow, and dances held at G.A.R. Hall and Fireman's Hall.
