You could do no better today than to purchase a copy of Robert Bogdan’s Exposing the Wilderness: Early Twentieth Century Adirondack Postcard Photographers (Syracuse University Press, 1999). Chapter Six, “Jesse Sumner Wooley: Official Silver Bay Photographer,” is filled with postcards of Silver Bay I’ve never seen anywhere else, and a history of Sumner’s time at Silver Bay, beginning with his first visits in 1905 and his stint as official photographer, which began in 1908.
