Those Places Thursday: Lagoon at Dawes Park, July 1939 and August 2017

The proportions aren't quite right on this one - but here is a then (July 1939) and now (August 2017) picture of the Arrington Lakefront Lagoon at Dawes Park in Evanston, Illinois.  The boys in the photo are my dad, Frederick Henry Pape, and his nine-days-younger first cousin John Charles "Jack" Bleidt (1929-1973).  The boys were ten years old here, and apparently had a model boat in the water.

Here's a photo of the lagoon from August 10, 2017, one of many photos I took of it that day.
