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.

"The Central" has been the Deer Head Inn for many years now. In addition to still operating as a hotel, it is also one of the oldest continuously operating jazz venues in the country.

Mexican Souvenirs?

I always go to PA when I want Mexican items.

How poplar was this place?

The siding is made of tree bark shingles, probably from poplar trees, as its bark is among the easiest to work with.

I found the place this was taken

Route 611, just before you enter the village heading north. The grass shack appears long gone, but the distinctive railings on "The Central" are still there.

This kind of gives me the warm fuzzies - its not too far from my stomping grounds where I grew up.

By any other name ...

Perhaps we ought to have been calling that style "Appalachian" rather than "Adirondack" all along?
