Check out this vintage postcard! It’s titled, “Adirondack Mountains, on the Boquet River.” Do you recognize the stretch of the river? Any idea where it’s located? What about the date of the postcard?
Here is what the community already had to share:
Jim Deschamps: A lot of fond childhood memories of swimming in the Boquet!
Karin Keene: Looks like my stretch of the River south of Boquet. I love that river.
I’m not sure myself where exactly this stretch of the Boquet River is. The river is only 40 miles long though, and the mouth empties into Lake Champlain in Willsboro, NY. So it’s safe to say the stretch of river is somewhere local!
I think this is an illustration—or do you think it’s an old photograph of some kind?
Take a look at the backside of the postcard below. It was never sent, so there is no postage date stamp on it. It appears that the Hugh C. Leighton Co. Manufacturers of Portland, Maine is the company that made the postcard, although it was printed in Frankfort, Germany.
