The Things You Find in Photos

At first glance, a sailing canoe, circa 1890, but on the forested shore…

… you can see the white pillars of what is today Roosevelt Hall. When this photo was taken, the home was probably owned by William Willetts or Edward Padelford. But the photo holds one more treasure…

… floating in the water, just above this caption, a whiskey bottle. And that’s what the sailor is looking down at as he glides by.
