Follow in "Stoddard's Footsteps" at the Adirondack Museum

BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE - His career spanned the settling of the Adirondacks, the heyday of the guide, the steamship, and the grand hotel. Pioneer photographer Seneca Ray Stoddard produced over 8,000 images of a changing landscape - the largest documentary record of regional life in the late 19th century.

Adirondack photographer Mark Bowie followed in Stoddard's footsteps more than a century later, faithfully photographing once again the exact locations of many of his classic images.

Join Bowie Sunday, Feb. 15 at the Adirondack Museum at as he compares the Adirondacks of today with Stoddard's. The comparisons are fascinating, sometimes surprising, and in every case, illuminating.

The program "In Stoddard's Footsteps" will be the second in the museum's popular Cabin Fever Sunday series. Held in the Auditorium, the presentation will begin promptly at 1:30 p.m. Cabin Fever Sunday programs are offered at no charge to museum members. The fee for non-members is $5. There is no charge for children of elementary school age or younger. Refreshments will be served.
