Frozen lake in Zürich

Seegfroerni, 1929

People skating on the frozen lake of Zürich, Switzerland.
Photo taken by Walter Burkhard, around 1929.

Most people remember only the famous "Seegfroerni" of 1963, when there was a fair in Zürich which lasted for 30 days.
There are also ancient reports about the frozen lake from 1572 and 1684.

(The original photo is a transparency on a lantern slide, therefore I was difficult for me
to scan the picture witch a good resolution. The original is of very good quality.)
