A new look at old photos in Lake Placid

Listen to this story
Historians in Lake Placid are asking for the public's help in identifying hundreds of old photographs on display this summer. The photos are just a fraction of the thousands of images on glass plate negatives that were rescued by Dr. George Hart from destruction in the 1970's. Now known as the Barry Collection, the glass plates depict life in the Adirondacks: sports, families, recreation and wildlife. The photos date back to the late 19th and early 20th century. Todd Moe toured the exhibit at the Lake Placid North Elba Historical Society with Parmelee Tolkan, vice president of the Historical Society.
