Meet Dr. B.W. Travis and Ropp Triplett skating

on Riley Creek near the Grove Street bridge

The location: the Little Riley, just south of Columbus Grove Road.

The event: ice skating in the winter.

The skaters: Dr. B.W. Travis (left) and Ropp Triplett (right)

If we could get a better view of the cars parked along Grove Road we could nail down a year. Jim Diller provided this photo taken by his father, Paul Diller.

Our guess on the year: late 1950s. How many viewers fell in the ice at this spot?
