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.
