5W Wednesdays

It’s time for another 5 Ws Wednesday! We need your help identifying the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, and/or WHY of this photo. This photograph of an unidentified man at a camp was taken by Ray Brook tuberculosis patient William Schuster in March of 1909. The handwritten note on the back reads, “Camp on Saranac Lake opp. Benj. Hall’s Lodge.” We think that Benjamin Hall likely had a camp on Twin Sisters Islands, but he also owned thousands of acres in the area. Do you know where Hall’s Lodge was, or where this camp might be? Send us an email at mail@historicsaranaclake.org, or call 518-891-4606 to tell us what you know!
