Bobsled on a Snowy Day

In honor of the (let us hope) last snowfall of the season, which is now turning the ground into mud, here's a picture of some snowy transportation.

The photo is undated; based on general appearances I'd put it in the 1920s. The location is not specified. It might possibly be the old James Chester place, but I can't say for sure.

The woman second from the right looks like "Aunt" Nancy Thompson (as she was known to the young Harmses), Eva's mother. The rest of the people are unidentified.

The sled was probably a wagon for three seasons out of four. When snow fell, you'd take the wagon wheels off and put on skids.
