A Snow Day from Yesteryear -- Jose Rivera in 1947

Assemblyman Jose Rivera shared with us -- and all his pals on Facebook -- this photo of himself after a 1947 snowstorm at E. 167th St. and Home St. Following the photo is Rivera's own description of the photo. We thought you'd find it interesting.

"My First experience with a snow storm. 1947 Picture taken by my uncle Julio Padilla. at 167 st. and home street. This was a storm! 24 inches. This picture was taken after we moved from a shelter in the lower Eastside of Manhattan. We moved to 995 e. 167th St. into a furnished room. My 2 sisters Santa and Chenta and My Mother. We were so poor that this is a hand me down PeaCoat. It had 3 missing buttons. We were never able to replace them. No money for buttons."  -Jose Rivera's description of this photo from Facebook
