February Items from 1887 and 1945
In February, 2006 we published a page February Ice Fatalities in Past Years that got quite a few hits.
Today is February 12, 2008 and I just remembered a recent item from Feb. 12, 1945, exactly 63 years ago. It's a wonderful picture, shown below, of how ice fishermen were picked up at the airport at Put-in-Bay back then, and happens to have one Middle Bass resident in the picture.
Another surprising February find is the envelope shown below. It was apparently written by I. Petersen of Sugar Island in 1887, and mailed on Middle Bass Island on Feb. 21, 1887.
