Sequoia Lake, CA: 1926. Photograph Album. The album is 6" x 8" with over 90 2" x 3" photographs. Photographs are in nice shape and either glued or attached to pages with corner mounts. Most of the photos are captioned. The album is in nice shape with some minor wear; the original string tie has been mended and now only goes through two of the three binding holes. Very Good. Item #008430
Sequoia Lake is just outside of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park in California and was originally created by the Kings River Lumber Company to serve as a storage pond and water source for its log flumes, It was purchased by a group of regional YMCA conferences in 1922 with the proviso that it could only be used for the association's youth camps. These photographs show camp life at the lake in the mid-1920s including tents at Camp Gaines, the mess hall, many different images of campers (hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, cooking, etc.), a wooden bridge, the Zumwalt Lodge, the Stump House, scenery, the General Grant and Martyr giant sequoias, and more.
