Nenana Ice Classic

I was looking through a box of old pictures my mother left to me when she passed away. Being it’s spring time and the Nenana Classic is on and everyone is waiting for the ice to go out. This old tri-fold had some neat pictures of Nenana Alaska.

    How old is the flyer? I’ve been to Nenana, most recently last year at the end of April and the town has changed. Ed of So Cal

    Ed, if you click on the pictures they open up in a another page at a larger image. You can see it says on the sign on the tripod, 1958.

    I did not know they opened up if you clicked… I guess I need to be more adventuresome. LOL… I think 1958 was a good year for kids… I was born then… Then that means that the Nenana Ice Classic has been going on for 90 years… WOW. A neat thing… And when you figure that in 1958 the prize money could have bought one a house and a car, that contest was amazing. Ed of SoCal
