And you thought flying at the Weirs was only in the summertime! Here we see the "Staggerwing" Beechcraft parked on the ice near the summertime location of the seaplane base. I think winter of 1936-7 or 1937-8 because the Mt. Washington is in the background and it burned just before Christmas 1939, and the ice wouldn't have been safe to land on that early in the season. Plane was acquired in June 1936 from the Beech factory by T.E.P. Rice, who was then president of Winnipesaukee Air Service.
