Notice that Pontoosuc Lake (located at approximately 10 o'clock in the photo) is totally snow-covered whereas the smaller polluted Silver Lake appears only partially covered by ice.

It never froze when GE was dumping there, even caught on fire.

Also note the trees on either side of the Housatonic River, whereas today on Google Earth, one only sees rip-rap and shoreline as a result of the clean-up..
