Thursday’s Photo Caption Contest
Debra Steidel Wall had her work cut out for her to pick this week’s winning caption, but ultimately the prize goes to Rebecca for cheering up a somber photo with some Walt Disney charm. The original caption reads: “Woman with large pumpkin at Cass Lake” and it was taken in 1915. The folks at the Archival Research Catalog thought the image deserved a bit more description and added, “An elderly Indian woman stands in a garden next to a huge pumpkin,” but that still doesn’t explain how that pumpkin got so big or how that poor woman got so mopey.
Hopefully you’ll have a happier Halloween this weekend than our poor pumpkin grower! Rebecca certainly will since she’s won 30% off at the National Archives eStore where (cough, cough) that great National Archives quarterly, Prologue, is sold !
From depressed lows last week to new highs (literally) this week, you never know what photos we’ll find that need captions. Happy captioning!
