PICATINNY ARSENAL, N.J. - Scurrying to meet the daily demands of a job
make it easy to forget what fun is. It is especially easy when winter
throws snow and cold into the mix.
So, this week’s column is running a photo of earlier Picatinny and
enjoying the unofficial recreational facilities of the installation.
The accompanying shot appeared in Picatinny Arsenal: The Cradle of
American Ammunition, a publicity brochure the installation put out in
the 1950s, and sought to tout the recreational possibilities of the area
to potential employees.
The place is Lake Picatinny and the season is winter. The viewer is
facing toward the west side of the lake.
