"Traffic Jam"

June 22, 1970, Neenah-Menasha Daily Northwestern
Here's a picture unique to Menasha and other cities along the Fox River, and definitely a harbinger of summer.  Seeing this scene reminds me of the days before air conditioning in my boyhood home and the many late summer nights with open windows.  As I lived only three blocks from the river, the clanging bells of the Racine Street Bridge opening for boat traffic is etched in my memory.
