Glad to see that you are also interested in "OLD" patterns. This was very popular pattern in the 1050s and 1960s here in Colorado. It was especially effective at Dillon Reservoir when it was first built. It also was very effective in the lakes in the Derby Flattops (now Flat Tops Wilderness Area). Great blog!!!
