5W Wednesdays

Historic Saranac Lake needs your help identifying the who, what, where, when, and/or why of this photo. This photograph was likely taken by Ethel Nickerson Walker, who worked as a nurse and ran a cure cottage on Park Avenue. Other than that, we don’t know anything about it! These people may be sitting on the steps of the Walker Cottage, at 67 Park Ave. (now 134 Park Ave.). Can you confirm this? Do you recognize any of these people? Let us know by leaving a comment or sending us a message! (Photo provided — Historic Saranac Lake Collection, 2022.13.50. Gift of Ethel Nickerson Walker.) 5Ws responses from September: Sept. 6, 2023.6.73 — no identification; Sept. 13, 2021.6.83 — no identification; Sept. 20, 2022.30.1.75 — likely 45 Franklin Ave., which burned down in 2009; Sept. 28, 2021.6.185 — the houses shown are the back of buildings on Cantwell Way, looking toward Carpenters’ Fields.
