Throwback Thursday Photo, Sledding on the Winnebago Reservation

Five Winnebago children with sleds (RG2010.PH0-000025)

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. In today’s #ThrowbackThursday photo five children from the Winnebago Reservation have sleds at the ready for a day of fun in a wintery wonderland. The photograph was taken by Dr. Margaret W. Rhode Koenig during her 1922 study of tuberculous on the Winnebago Reservation. The young girls’ smiles bring joy to the world and with their sleds they will be dashing through the snow. So, here is to dreaming of a white Christmas and may your days be merry and bright. #TBT
