Ice Skating on the Reflecting Pool

Here is a nice photo from the late 1920s of two young women skating on the reflecting pool, with the Lincoln Memorial in the background. I think it’s safe to say, this isn’t something you’re likely to see today.

    I recall ice skating on the Reflecting Pool in the 1950s. There would be a 55-gallon drum with a warming fire going and folks would be skating. It was great – I miss those times.

    I wonder why they stopped it.
