About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

I'm just a borscht in a cage

Love the bird cages! I only have the vaguest of memories of Tamarack Lodge. My wife may remember better as her family went there often. We went to Grossinger's mostly.

A Borscht Belt Classic

Besides the pools, activities, horseback riding, hiking and golf, the Tamarack boasted entertainment such as Danny Kaye, Jerry Lewis, Cream, Janis Joplin and The Who. It was ultimately destroyed by a series of fires, the last one in April 2012, but had long before been closed up and abandoned. There is a wonderful collection of the (pre-fire) derelict property on Flickr.

Clearly a fake

This photo must be a modern recreation: there are NO ASHTRAYS. Or would they have removed them for the photo?
