Fun in Ellenberger Park--1918

Two Vollrath children enjoy a day in Ellenberger Park sometime in 1918.  They seem to be enjoying the park benches and a watering jug on a warm day.  Victor Vollrath, who is now 95, reports that he used to swim in Pleasant Run stream before there was ever a city pool in the park.  Like children in 2012, sledding down the large hill in the park was also a popular activity in 1920!  The historic images are courtesy of Dr. Victor Vollrath.
