These photos, from negatives at the Bancroft Library in Hopedale, were taken
    by Edwin Darling or Hopedale. From what I've been able to tell, all of them
    were taken between 1898 and 1909. The upper ones on this page are
    obviously from the lake. I think the three at the bottom were taken there also,
    but I'm not sure. If you recognize that building or see any other clues, I'd be
    interested in hearing from you. Here's a link to my email.
