New Rockford Transcript - Official Newspaper of Eddy County since 1883


Photos from: Archival Anecdotes: Summertime (of another era)




Folks in full Edwardian attire (including knickerbockers and parasols) gather on a lakeside beach. Several outbuildings and trees frame the backdrop. A young man plays guitar, while others test the waters. In the distance appears to be a water-slide and crowds of people having a good time.   This photograph is part of the Eddy County Museum's historic photo collection, however I'm not entirely convinced it was taken in or around Eddy County. Perhaps someone out there has heard of such a lakeside paradise and can provide some context. Circa 1910.
