Gene Kuhns and John Cockrain seen standing in front of a sign at the Upper Terminal. The sign reads: "The highest wind ever observed by man was recorded in this building. The Mt. Washington Observatory now operating in the building located 25 yards to the west was housed here in the old Summit Stage Office during its first five years, 1932-1937. In a great storm on April 12, 1934, the crew's instruments measured the wind velocity of 231 miles per hour."
