Glen of the Pools, Watkins Glen, New York

A change of season with this postcard, which depicts Winter in Watkins Glen State Park. This photo was also black and white, then colored before printing, so the colors are likely somewhat fantastic.

Arthur H. Richards, Watkins Glen, N. Y.

What appears to be damage in the lower center of the image is, rather, a printing problem. The description states:

In winter time, Watkins Glen State Park, is seldom visited as the various ice formations make the Glen inaccessible. In the summer season thousands of persons go through the gorge.

This card is part of a series believed to date from the 1950s.
