Transcription"Beautiful rain - After days and days of sunshine, rain and plenty of it - fell in the Red River Valley Wednesday and Thursday. While Fargo-Moorhead residents bundled up in rainclothes to slog through puddles, Cal Olson, a Fargo Forum cameraman, caught some of the average pedestrians who battled the downpour." - caption with similar image published in The Fargo Forum & Daily Tribune, June 1, 1951, p. 1.
