DC in Wacky Photos: Polar Bear Pool Swim at the Zoo

One of my favorite 'Wacky Washington' Pictures from my Woodley Park book, co-written with Gregory J. Alexander.

In August of 1973, National Zoo staff members take a welcome plunge in the 171,000 gallon polar bear exhibit pool.  Lucky for them, the bears wouldn't arrive for two more weeks.
