Senaca Ray Stoddard and Jesse Sumner Wooley, along with other local professional and
amateur photographers, visually recorded life at Lake George around the beginning of the
twentieth century. With artistic clarity and astuteness, they created a pictorial diary of
this well-known resort area, as our grandparents and great-grandparents would have known
This pictorial history explores the bays and byways of the lake, its year-round residents, and the vacationers who made it their temporary home every summer. Replete with images of moments, hideaways, and people that no longer exist, Lake George is a new experience in an old familiar place.
Authors Gale J. Halm and Mary H. Sharp have had a lifelong love affair with Lake George and the Adirondacks. With this priceless collection, they hope to share their love with many generations of residents and visitors to come.
