Celebrating Our Past: Green County Historical Society
35305a.jpg
Photo supplied by Green County Historical Society This photograph was made from one of more than 300 glass negatives recently donated to the Green County Historical Society from the Albert and Marian Deppeler estate. It is believed that Ferdinand Ingold, Mr. Deppelers maternal grandfather, took this photo. It shows a young girl standing by a tree in front of Hydes Pond, now known as Lake Francis. Hydes Pond is located between Lake Drive and Recreation Park. Much ice was harvested from Hydes Pond in the days of iceboxes. This photo looks straight west toward the Lincoln Park water tower in the distance. To the right of the tower, in the break between the trees, the overhead bridge on 16th Avenue can be seen in an enlargement of this photo. People may obtain copies of any photograph in the GCHS collection for a small fee. If you have any questions about GCHS, feel free to contact Matt at mfigi48@tds.net or 608-325-6503.
