1905 Cranberry Lake advertisement: Part 2

From Mark Friden:

From the September 1905 issue of the same magazine are smaller ads for individual hotels. Self-explanatory.

We showed the Cranberry Lake advertisement yesterday.

1905 Cranberry Lake advertisement: Part 1

From Mark Friden:

Here is a full-page ad from the August 1905 issue of The Four-Track News (I have every original issue from that year). I can’t make the scan any better without breaking the binding, which I am loath to do. Seeing as how the Cranberry Lake Railroad from Benson Mines to Wanakena was not yet even three years old when this ad ran, this demonstrates how popular Cranberry Lake had already become as a vacation destination.

  • “We’ve got two more weekends after this, to deal with higher than usual number of visitors – even for the summer season – in the Adirondack backcountry. Popular parking areas, boat launches, and campsites fill early; consider visiting less popular areas of the Adirondack Park.”
