@ Nineacreguy , Pineedles Gillygirl & Senter Cove Guy

Thank you all for helping me figure this out. I have been trying for a little while now.

You made my day.

I never got a chance to do screen shot like I wanted to do, even though you all are sure it's Camp Tecumseh I'm not exactly sure were Camp Tecumseh (is or was).

But thank you all for helping me identify where that photo originates from.

Very cool that four of you confirmed its location.

I feel so blessed that I could identify this from a canoe trip my late husband, and sister-brother-in-law took 13 years ago when we rented in Buzzell Cove. It’s such a lovely part of the lake. But aren’t they all in their own way?!

Thank you so much for the reply. I don't know why but it's one of those old post cards I fell in love with over the years. Partly because I could not figure out its location. There is nothing really special about it other than what appears to be one girl on the dock all by herself ...... after everyone else is gone ..... maybe that's why it's special.

Thank you ................. You nailed it with that with that photo comparison. I don't think I would have found it without your help.

For me at least I've been asking myself where the hell was this long dock.

So...
Did the Senter House and the Colonial Hotel exist at the same time- doing the same type of business?
Beautiful places!

Edit added: Same building- different names?

The old Senter House was replaced around 1890 with a new building directly across the street, as seen in the first photo. It was sold in 1904 for over $30,000, and renamed the Colonial Hotel. It lasted until 1919 when, like so many other grand hotels of its era, it was destroyed in a fire.

Thank you.

I guess I got confused by the Senter House picture caption "Opens June 24, 1893", and the link notation, "The town became a popular destination in the 19th century, and around 1830 the Senter House opened on the site of the present-day library."

A group of photos of a famous boat, probably more valuable and more sought after now-a-days then when it was originally on the water.


Any guess on the age of that truck above to roughly date this image?

I'm guessing this photo of the weirs was taken by a fortune teller.

Does anyone recognize any part of this image. Other than what is written on the picture no other information.

Question Maybe a "Cell" or Weak Tornado?

The hurricane of '38 hit in September.

That mature trees are snapped off halfway up suggests a twister.

Could the house be what is now the Grand View Resort?

Default Asking this as Question?

Where was this place where they had the so-called "Latch Key To The White Mountains" I seem to remember it on "Parade Road" or somewhere up near there, along with a nice senic view. Any one remember where this was? I can't quite remember where it was.

Near the location of the former griddle in the middle just before the old golf driving range on the same side

Default "Welcome" signs

I believe the "Latchkey" signs were "Welcome to Meredith" type, so there were multiples, one on Rt 3 near the Meredith/Laconia line, just past Tamarack, one as you come down the hill to the docks and one on Rt 25 on the Center Harbor town line. There may also have been one coming southbound on Rt 3. I don't recall one on Rt 104 or Parade Rd, but I traveled those roads rarely.

Thank you

I think you might be right and and that there were more than just one. I'm really not 100% sure where I remember it from and could have it confused with posible multible sightings, however what I do seem to remember it seemed like it was in the middle of no where .......... and thought to myself ... who would take the time to put a sign here.

Are there any of them still around? From what I can vaguely remember They almost looked a little homemade-ish from a blacksmith shop. Something like a chamber of commerece item of sorts.

I'm sure you're right but the only one I have a specific recollection of is the one I mentioned. I remember that one looking half fallen down 40 years ago. Just did a quick google search and the term latchkey seems to have been used since the pretty early 1900s.

I remember two of these signs. I know there was one on route 104, but I canít exactly place where it was. It doesnít seem to me it was on the boundary line, it seems it was further up 104. But that picture that you posted is haunting me.

The other one I remember very clearly. It was on route 25 just before you cross into Meredith. I was living in Brookhurst at the time and the sign was always my way of knowing that I was turning ahead.

There's a big "Latchkey" sign on a red garage in Meredith, on the left as you head down Pleasant St. going toward Meredith Neck. Here is another Latchkey image. The Post Office had a National Air Mail Week promotion in May, 1938 and towns could design their own logo to be used on airmail letters for that week only. This is what Meredith came up with. There were about 50 towns in NH that had their own "cachet" envelopes, kind of a collector item nowadays.

Thanks folks for your thoughts on the "Latch Key" question. I remember (them/it) too ..... just not exactly where. Like Susie Cougar mentions, a little haunting. I seem to remember them from working at the Depot Restaurant in the early 80's.


Anyway now that I'm at overload on Covid-19 posts, thought I would show off my new vanity plate.

Looking at the LAKE WINNIPESAUKEE license plate created from seven 1970's dark green & white NH plates ...... don't you think these old license plates were a better look than today's NH plate.

We used to change them every year (then maybe two?) and they alternated colors. One year they were green with white and the next they were white with green.

Top-Water , I googled Meredith New Hampshire latchkey signs. There were two articles, one from the Laconia Daily Sun and the other from New Hampshire Business Weekly. In September 2018, marking Meredith 250th year, new signs were erected at all four spots. The only picture they had showed the sign on route 25 as you leave Center Harbor to enter Meredith. It did not say exactly where the other signs were.
I do not know how to send a link. But, Annie Paquette, made all the new signs and put them up. Iím not up there now, but there must be someone that can verify the location of the signs now. I hope this helps.

Thank you ........very much. I'll try to track down some info with your lead.

Itís the sign on route 104 that is haunting me. I can see it looking like the photo that you posted, I just canít pinpoint exactly where it is.

Default I've seen those oxen before...

I believe they are in Meredith Bay just northwest of the old shake mill that processed them into what most people call shingles. They would pull logs into the mill from that conveyor.

Now of course it's the location of Church Landing.

Absolutely 100% correct.

Old town road building team on Meredith Bay 1880s. Shook Lumber Company is to the right. This team was used to break roads of deep snow throughout town.

A place that I wish was still there. I can always find an excuse to visit a fishing store.

This is one I need help on. I'm just not sure of its exact location. Obviously near Alton ...... but what cove is this?
Perhaps someone here knows where the "Bakeman Cabins" was.

A lot of talk the past few weeks on big fish caught up north. Little known is that we used to catch them like this all the time in the old days. The main reason they built the railroads ..... to transport the fish.

I'm really not sure.... If someone was really good looking up things at the registry of deeds it could really maybe pin point it.

But sometimes folks just know this stuff off the top of there heads.

Looking at Roberts Cove on a map of the lake I think you are right. I guess the roadway gets close enough where the old car is parked to make it all fit.
