Winter Wonderland Miller Park Ice Skating, 1958

Miller Park ice-skaters, 1958.

Ice skating was once popular at Miller Park on Bloomington’s west side. Fifty-seven years ago, mid-December 1958, three young women (left to right) Helen Johnson, Judy Johnson (standing), and Raylene Mitchell finish prepping before heading for the ice on the park’s smaller lagoon.
Oh, that’s eight-year-old Eddie Batty peeking behind the tree!
