Here we have another great find, on this Thursday, from our archives of early camp scenes. Again we think this photo dates from the 1930s. It shows several girls enjoying their free time on the porch of the Lakeview Lodge, one of the three stone meeting lodges dating from the earliest days of Rockbrook Camp. This lodge, like the others at camp, was built in the early 1920s using rock quarried from the mountain just above Rockbrook. It’s extraordinarily well preserved today and is still a hub of activity throughout every camp day. It would be so easy to find this exact scene any summer at camp!
Check out this great old photograph we found in a camp scrapbook that was recently donated to Rockbrook. The Lakeview Lodge and Vesper Rock are the stars of the show! Here is an earlier blog post with a great photograph of the interior of the Lakeview Lodge.
If you have not been to camp recently you will be relieved to know that it still looks very much the same as in this wonderful old photograph. The trees are a bit taller but the feel of camp is just like this picture! If you look really hard you may even see Mrs. Carrier in the front left of the image, walking down the road wearing white.
We love the unique perspective of this photo as it was taken from the hill where the gym currently stands. Be sure to click on the photo to see a larger version of the image.
