The Gold Mine in the Closet: Lake George, New York, 1942

Sugar has some more photos in the Gold Mine in the Closet. The latest ones are of Lake George, and it looks like his parents went camping there before he was born.

I only knew of Lake George, in upstate New York. From here to there is over 20 hours, and that’s interstate driving. Surely that wasn’t the right Lake George.

Sugar says it is. He said his father grew up in New York City, but went to the Lake George area for visits. After his father and mother were married, they continued to camp and rough it. In 1942, before Sugar was born, we have photos of Lake George.

That’s a long way to go. I would love to know the back story…
