Those interested in Silver Bay history are familiar with the name and work of Jesse Sumner Wooley, and the publication of J.S. Wooley: Adirondack Photographer, edited by Richard Timberlake and Philip Terrie, is in every way a cause for celebration. The book includes a generous chapter on Silver Bay, as well as many, many more beautiful photographs of Lake George. Below, just a sample:
Middlebury vs. West Point, 1920
Launch trip, 1910
A 1910 pageant; perhaps those tablets bear the Ten Commandments.
Slivers, the Famous Clown, 1908
A Silver Bay wedding
