Thursday’s Photo Caption Contest

The PE rope climb for PS 31 was like no other in New York City.

The PE rope climb for PS 31 was like no other in New York City.

Rebecca, it may be time to quit your day job. You have wowed another one of our guest judges, Kathleen Williams, Executive Director of the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.

The actual caption for this fund-raising fanatic? “The ‘Human Squirrel’ who did many daring ‘stunts’ in climbing for benefit of War Relief Funds in New York City. He is shown here at a dizzy height in Times Square.” The photo was taken circa 1918, back when superheroes sported suits, not spandex.

Have you got what it takes to craft a caption that catches our eye, and tickles our funny bone? If you do, you could win 30% off at the Archives eStore.

Have a gander at this week’s photo and give us your best!

Unfortunately, it was only after the forest was clear-cut that it was discovered that a two horsepower sled was insufficient.
