Convicts on West Lake Road

“From thirty to forty Auburn prison convicts, under the charge of Supt. Sarr, are engaged in resurfacing West Lake State roads, having quarters at ‘Camp Sarr,’ the tenant house on the Dowling farm. They work in gangs of sixteen men, each under the charge of a foreman. Gangs of prisoners are also engaged in repair work on State roads in the town of Owasco.”
