At Muskoka Lakes (1917)

I'll write much more about this later, but this year I've been in the slow process of having numerous century-old negatives of family photos scanned and digitized at Camera Center of York. I'm also getting one print of each photo — the first time these photos have been printed, to my knowledge, because I don't recall seeing any of them in family albums.

I just wanted to share this one in a quick post, because it's a gorgeous snapshot. It was from a negative envelope labeled "1917 Muskoka Lakes." There is both a Township of Muskoka Lakes and a Lake Muskoka in Ontario, Canada. It appears to be a spot my ancestors vacationed at a century ago.

I'm fairly certain that the second person from left, in the white hat, is the oft-mentioned Greta Miriam Chandler Adams (1894-1988), my great-grandmother. It's not immediately clear to me who the other folks are, but I might eventually be able to suss out some of their identities.
