A half century ago on January 26th, 1967 Saginaw was hit with the largest snowstorm in the recorded history of the city. The official snowfall amounts were 23.8 inches of snow. I would share my memories of the snowstorm but in 1967 that was 3 years before I was born but going thru my grandfather’s photographs I found this photo. My grandparents lived in the apartments next to the old Feige building and this photo must have been taken from the rooftop. you can see it’s looking down Genesee street towards the river, and from the cars in the photo, I would say it was taken after the blizzard. One other thing to note, of all the buildings in this photo I think only 4 of them are still standing today. The bank building, the Bancroft, The building on the corner of Franklin and Genesee and the old Michigan National Bank.
