Introducing….Lewiston, New York, circa 1920’s…

Lewiston from the Niagara Escarpment, 1920'sClick on the photograph for a fuller view.

Mystery solved!

Just a moment ago, I was stopped by a wonderful woman just about to walk out of the door.  She asked if I was “me” and if I had received all of the “little gifts” she had left anonymously on my desk through the year. How exciting to finally meet her! She went on to tell me that she was the one who left me the beautiful print of the winding river. As the photograph was not labeled, I was hesitant to declare that it was Lewiston. Cynthia said that it was, indeed, Lewiston, and that the picture was taken from her parents’ house, up on the Escarpment, back in the 1920’s.

Quite a different scene than we are used to….but nevertheless…Lewiston.
