Circa 1954 Photo of Jeep on Lake Mendota Ice Fishing

• CATEGORIES: Features, Library Collections, Old Images

This photo from the University of Wisconsin Digital Achrives was taken around 1954 and shows a jeep atop the Lake Mendota Ice, surrounded by fisherman.

Lake Mendota borders the northern side of downtown Madison, Wisconsin. In the early 1990s I lived in Madison for a couple years, but rarely spent much time near Lake Mendota.

This first photo is a closeup from the photo below it. The jeep appears to be a pretty stock MB.
