I ran across this picture while repeatedly hitting the Stumble! button. It's from the National Archives. The description says, "Four young members of the Madison Square Boy's Club rowing a boat in a rooftop pool, Manhattan skyscrapers in the background, Feb. 1950."
First question: How warm was it that February? They don't look very bundled up.
Next question: "Madison Square" has referred to a number of different places in Manhattan. The Chrysler Building is clearly identifiable to the right of center, but I'm not sure of the other buildings, so I can't quite nail down the geography.
Next question: Rooftop pool? It looks like the roof is just flooded. And who hauled a rowboat all the way to the roof?
