Still Shoveling the Sidewalks

February 14, 1950, Minneapolis Tribune:

Cold weather and snow don’t make Charles Sontofske, 78, and Olaf H. Olson, 90, move closer to the fireside. Out come the shovels and they tackle the sidewalks. Sontofske, who lives at 1414 Penn Ave. N, and his neighbor Olson, of 2118 14th Ave. N, shovel towards each other, pausing when they meet to exchange the time of day.
