Approach to Twin Lake Camp
1910 - 1940
This black and white photograph captures the approach to Twin Lake Camp in Brandon. The image looks up a narrow dirt driveway that rises up and small slope and passes beneath a rustic gate. The gate and associated fence are constructed of rough logs. The posts or the large gate are embedded in stone piers. The name of the camp is painted on a wooden signboard that hangs at the top of the gate. A large field encompasses much of the campground. A number of wood posts are clusters at the left side of the image. Other photographs of the camp indicate that these may define the boundaries for a ball field. A few modest, wood-frame, gable-roof buildings are located further into the background. The most visible building has a log porch and a stone chimney. A tall, narrow, deciduous tree grows alongside the gate, and several shrubs and deciduous trees grow around the buildings. Forested hills and mountains rise in the distance. The thick foliage suggests a summer season. This photograph was taken by a photographer for the Eastern Illustrating & Publishing Co. and contributed to the Landscape Change Program by the Penobscot Marine Museum, located in Searsport, ME. Eastern Illustrating was a postcard company located in Belfast, ME that took thousands of photographs throughout New England and upstate New York between 1909 through the 1950s.
