Preserving Pocahontas

Ice at Hosterman – 1904

I’ll try to continue with this winter theme until the spring thaw, even though there weren’t many photographers who braved the ice and snow to take pictures back in the day. This is a fabulous picture of ice along the Greenbrier River at Hosterman in the winter of 1904. Pocahontas Co. Historical Society Collection, ID: PHS000071
