Two dogs run across Helper's Main Street in the early 1900's while this photo was being taken, causing a blurry image on the film. When it snowed on streets in the days before truck or tractor snowplows, the snow was seldom removed, but continued to be packed down until the spring when it melted away turning many streets into solid masses of mud. Snow hit the area in the month of November 1907 and caused a number of problems.

People going from smaller towns to the cities are often impressed with the indifference with which they are treated by hotels and hotel employee. There seems be a sort of common understanding between hotels that commercial trade is more desirable for the reason that there is a chance to add "extras" which always means a neat additional charge for very little work, and no additional expense to the hotel, It is very gratifying, then, for home people to find a first class hotel that caters especially to local patronage. The Windsor Hotel, Salt Lake City, caters especially to Utah people and makes every provision for their care and satisfaction. The Windsor is located at 225 Main street, right in the business district; and visitors from this county will do well to remember this popular hostelry in the city.
