HOW NOT TO DRESS FOR SLEDDING FUN IN BELGIUM

pcab sleddingpcab sledding 1This photograph captures three couples gathered around a “tricked out” sled on a winter day. There is snow on the ground and the woman are wearing weather appropriate footwear. Interestingly, only three of the subjects are paying attention to the camera. It is also notable that the individuals in this image are not dressed for frolicking in the snow. My guess is that they may have been out walking and happened upon the sled. One of them may have thought the sled presented them with a terrific  photo opportunity. This photograph, according to an inscription on the reverse of the image, was taken in Spa, Belgium. The photograph was shot at the Chalet de Geronstere in 1933. Spa is a town in the Province of Liege, Belgium. It is situated in a valley in the Ardennes mountains. This vintage photograph measures about 5″ x 5 1/4″  and is in very good condition.
