Sledding, 1946.

Who says there aren’t hills in Central Illinois? These youngsters took advantage of the chilly, snowy weather over the 1946-1947 New Year’s holiday to go sledding down an icy stretch of South Lee Street in Bloomington.
Pictured here (left to right) are Harold Reynolds, Robert Schupp, Irving Bernstein, Charles Barnett, Carol Ann Shay, Gene Freehill, Donnie Freehill, and Dayle Shay. Note the barricade to keep automobiles away from these Lee Street sledders!
