|The pictures shows a view of all (15) 1920's & 1930's Totem Lodge Burden Lake, New York Photographs in this lot. This lot has as a bonus an original old photo envelope that was found with these. I had acquired a large lot of old photographs and negatives from this old lodge and they are split up into (4) separate lots in my items right now. Below here is some background information that I found on the internet about the totem pole that is in many of these photographs: |
"The original 9 hole golf course at Burden Lake Country Club first opened in 1927 as part of the Totem Lodge Resort on Third Burden Lake."
