A black and white photograph of Charley Miller dressed in several layers of clothing and leaning forward on his snowshoes.
A Biddeford Daily Journal article from from January 29, 1936, indicates that Miller was on a snowshoe hike from Bangor, Maine, to Boston, Massachusetts, bringing a message about the high quality of Maine furs. The trip was sponsored by Scott Furriers, Inc. The article further notes that the morning's temperature had been 10 below zero and at that point he had traveled 139 miles in six days (p.5).
