Thursday’s Photo Caption Contest

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

It's all downhill from here!
It’s all downhill from here!

It’s not all downhill for you, Jodi! In fact, things are looking up since you won last week’s photo caption contest earning you 30% off at the National Archives eStore.

The original caption? “Party ‘nature sliding’ on the perpetual snow slopes below Paradise Glacier.” Yes, folks back in ’17 really knew how to cut loose. If you’re looking for a gift for the nature slider in your family you can order prints of this photo (and many other images) on our Pictopia site, which is offering free shipping through the holidays.

Long before there was Twitter in the world—and long before we launched our ongoing Bill of Rights Twitter Contest—people were using dots and dashes instead, not emoticons to spread the good word. But all that Morse coding took wires, and all that wiring took men way up on poles to fix it . . . or at least that’s what we think this photo is of. Until we can dig up its original caption, can we borrow yours? Post your wackiest comments, and you could be next week’s winner!

  1. ‎”The way I see it is, if they’d just bury these here poles in the ground, we wouldn’t have to go a climbin’ up ’em and we could just string them wires along ’em, and cover ’em up with dirt and be done with it”.

    “Then again… nah, that’s j…ust crazy. Nobody in their right mind would bury them wires”

  2. You put your right foot in,
    You put your right foot out;
    You put your right foot in,
    And you shake it all about.
    You do the Hokey-Pokey,
    And you turn yourself around.
    That’s what it’s all about!
