The Road to Glen Haven

Glen Haven Drive

“Picturesque Glen Haven on Skaneateles Lake, N.Y.” a Quarto-Chrome postcard, printed in Germany (Leipzig-Berlin-Dresden, take your pick) for the Wallace-Hahn Drug Co. of Skaneateles. We are fortunate to have the caption, as the lake and the Glen Haven hotel are absent from the photo. On the verso, the sender writes from Marietta, N.Y., in April of 1913, touching upon a personal concern and torrential rains:

“What has become of you? You must be very busy; inside of school and outside, perhaps. Do you see? All’s well here, but we came nearly getting washed away. The mill dam next to our house went out the other day. Write.”
