Bill on the Ice
Continuing on our spring and water themes of the week, we were looking for something to represent ice out (when bodies of water are finally freed of ice). This photo, however, was too strangely funny not to share. Maybe next year, Bill!
This photo shows a man, possibly named Bill, out ice-fishing with his home made shelter. It forms part of Minneapolis and St. Paul Newspaper Negative Collection and is dated 1948.
