Thursday’s Photo Caption Contest

Today’s post comes from National Archives Office of Strategy and Communications staff writer Rob Crotty.

YMCA!

YMCA!

Well, it’s not synchronized swimming on land, it’s legitimate life saver training in Idaho, circa 1936. You can view the ARC entry for this photo (a record of the FDR Presidential Library) by clicking on the picture at left. Andrea still has a great point: they do look a bit like the Village People. That caption won her 30% off at the eStore and our judge’s gratitude for a job well done.

As the summer heat hits overdrive across the country, we thought we’d keep with our aquatic theme to help everyone keep their cool. As such, we’ve found a peculiar oldie but goodie, one that needs your keen caption prowess. Show us what you’ve got!

Insert your caption!

Insert your caption!

For starters:  “Every spring the women of rural Vermont swim thousands of miles upstream to reproduce.”
