One of the nice things about winter growing up in Albion. 1968-69-era photo. I don't know anyone in this photo. ... See MoreSee Less
Loved skating there
I think I recognize the kid front and center but am not completely sure.
I loved going skating. My feet would be frozen when I got home and that was painful.
Always love to go skating ....I might even be in the picture who know everyone would go skating .....
Walked down Elm Street to the rink with my skates on!
That is hard on the skates , isn't it, Vicky?
One of our favorite childhood activities. So fun!
This brings back so many GREAT memories!!
It's too bad the present generation can't experience this winter treasure. Unfortunately, the spring got sprung and keeps the water moving too much for it to freeze properly.
Thanks for posting.
best hot chocolate, and fire to warm the hard as ice mittens.....and warm the tummy
That's me and I posted this picture a long time ago
Thanks for letting us know! I must have liked the photo! Most of the ones from that era I have are still in black-in-white.
I think it's 68,69,or 70 --- somewhere right in there
That's where I met my first girlfriend! Sonia Prigun. (Now Sonia Dove)
spent many a day at the ice skating rink and night.
Many days and nights skating there. . .crack the whip was always fun but Joe never liked it.
Carried my skates to school occasionally , had them sharpened at Sharp's Hardware . I think Western Auto did it also Or maybe it was Gambles or both
My first ice skating rink. I was about five or six then.
Great memories skating!
That is you in front, Ted Zerbe?
My number one childhood memory.
Mine fav memory as well. I loved going in the cabin for hot chocolate and warming up by the fire.
I loved it also, coming here from Texas In 1956, I had never seen anything like it. I wrote my Grandmothers & told them I stood on frozen water, in a pond.

Remember the Albion City Dump? It was located just west of Dean Drive on the west end of town. December 11, 1965 photo. ... See MoreSee Less
I thought Harrington school was built on a dump.. How many did Albion have????
Yes, Harrington too. Also North School.
Lincoln shire homes use to be a dump site also.
I still have a golf club, called a rough iron, from there, also a red melmac bowl that my dad, Howard Henson, got from there. Mom cleaned it up and we used it for a potato bowl for dinner. I have it now and use it. great memories of simpler times.
There was also one East of town on Erie St.
A lot of areas are filled with sand and debris from the foundries. On Eaton Street I occasionally find a piece of slag iron that works its way out of the ground in the back yard. My yard is about 3 feet higher than the yard directly behind on Weiner drive When I was a youngster the section of land between 26 1/2 mile road , Michigan Avenue and C drive north was a dumping site for the Malleable, all the office garbage and other trash was dumped there along with sand to cover it I wonder how much sand was brought to Albion over a century of making castings. I remember dump trucks running continuously from the Malleable to some dumping site in the country and every morning there would be a thin layer of black dust on everything outside. The smell of the foundry was common and now it's all gone and so are the jobs 🙁
When I went to Dalrymple School late 1950s early 1960s they filled in the swamp (black ditch) with Malleable dirt which was between the playground and Dalrymple Woods.
Remember this well we lived right across from the dump on Dean Drive.
That's now Mcintosh Park.
My grandfather Robert Armstrong (Coot) used to ride out to the dump with one of his buddies. I don't know if it was Muddy Water or Clear Water I just know the nick name. We used to ride in the back of the truck imagine that. The good old days.
I remember that lovely SMELL
That's called dumping your friends...
I DID NOT KNOW THAT, ALL THESE YEARS I THOUGH IT WAS LINCOLNSHIRE(SP).
My Dad dump his Rubbish truck there and use to push the garbage with the bulldozer. I remember this very well. Live down the street in the day. A land filled today. Dig further down in that dirt I'm sure you will run into garbage. Surprised that it's no gases being released
It was cleared by the time I was born. (1968) My parents still live on Dean Dr.
We should all " glow in the dark!!!! 🤔😳😏😄😄😄
