Car pulls skier in dangerous pastime
By Bill Lattin, Orleans County Historian
ALBION – Our photo illustrates a form of skiing that was popular in the 1920s. We do not advise anyone to attempt this dangerous sport.
Here we see the skier holding on to a tow rope, which is attached to the auto. We believe this photo was taken on Gaines Basin Road, looking north in the town of Albion between Allen and Phipps roads.
