Frequently we share a different historic image on the Essex on Lake Champlain Facebook page and invite our viewers to play some Vintage Essex Trivia. This time the photo features a scene from neighboring Willsboro, NY.
This old postcard is showing a view of “Willsboro Bay from Gale Mountain” as the caption notes. I don’t recognize the house/buildings that are present in the aerial photo–do you?
Check out the back side of the postcard below:
This postcard was sent! So it has a message and a datestamp with postage. The date is somewhat illegible but the year is clear, 1920. And sounds like it was sent by someone who went on a fishing trip. Do you recognize any of the names? I think it is to Geo Warner from Fred Van Alstyne if I’m deciphering that cursive script right. What do you think?
