Ahhh, for the good ol' days!


From the UBC 1949:


Sec. 2307 (b):  For purposes of design the wind pressure shall be taken upon the gross area of the vertical projection of buildings and structures at not less than 15 psf for those portions of the building less than sixty feet (60') above ground . . . ".
