Alonzo Jinks

Silver Bay Bridge

This photo was most probably taken by Alonzo Laurence Jinks (1885-1967) of LeRoy, New York, some time around 1905-1910. Alonzo was a tall, blue-eyed carpenter, and I wonder if this photo — with its swimmers out on the raft, Slim Point and the old bath house — is actually of the small bridge he himself built, and wanted to remember.
