Description

Main Avenue in Northport is shown after a snowstorm on January 24, 1948. The eight-inch snowfall was said to the the heaviest since 1936. While there were three snow storms in 1940, they did not produce as much snow. After one, however, a reading of 10 degrees below zero was recorded on the official government thermometer at the Hargrove Van de Graaff Airport.

The temperature when the Jan. 24, 1948 snow fell was near zero.

The Yellow Front and A&P grocery stores on the west side of Main Avenue in Northport are shown in the photo.
