The George and Helen Martin Family Jigsaw Puzzle
The children of George and Helen Martin depict a favorite winter activity – sledding. From L to R: Horace, Lawrence, Mary and Herbert, pose with their pony and double-runner sled in front of their stately home on Kearsarge Street. These sleds were used for coasting on the rolled or plowed roads in winter. Tory, Pumpkin, and Burnt Hills were popular spots with steep grades and long runoffs. Then it was the long trudge back up the hill, unless one had a pony.
