Check out this bill of sale for Snow Guards for Dr. M. Halliday that was issued on February 25th 1897. Snow guards have been around A LONG time. It's been exactly 114 years and 1 month since Halliday billed for his invention of the snow guards. I love how the address of this company points out the obvious , "between 2d and 3d Aves". A few years after the snow guards was invented, Charles G. Halliday, M. Hallidays son, bought out his fathers roofing business and continued pratice as a Slate and Metal roofer. He also continued to manufacture the snow guards for slate and slanting roofs.
