A couple of days ago, our Photo of the Day was Snowy Bluff Road, and some OMP longtimers remembered when the water and ice used to wash over the road. See the photo and their comments here.
The road’s been pretty stable over the past several decades or so, but the gorgeous Bluff Road we all know and love did not happen by magic. A team of Old Mission Peninsula stalwarts built the road back in 1909.

The photo above features those men – Frank Fowler with his team of horses Bennie and George, Art McManus with the rake, and Bert Kroupa, seated. Standing is Frank Valley (who was the Road Commissioner at the time), Gordon Valley, Matt Zoulek, unknown person and Tony Seaberg. Tell us in the comments section below if you know who the unknown person is.
Thanks to the Mary Jo (Solomonson) Lance and the folks at the Peninsula Telephone Company (now Acentek) for including this photo in their book, “A Century of Service: The People and Places on Old Mission Peninsula.”
