“The Thatchers: Photographing Lake George 1880-1950,” presents the work of Jule Thatcher (1856-1934) and his son and successor, Fred Thatcher (1881-1969), commercial photographers who lived, worked and documented life on Lake George.  For decades, they captured everything from stagecoaches to seaplanes, steam launches to speedboats, and everyone from rum runners to Roosevelts. Consisting of more than 500 images reproduced from the Thatchers’ own glass and cellulose acetate negatives, this exhibition is based on archives maintained by Fred Thatcher’s daughter, Helen Thomson, and donated to the Bolton Historical Museum by her children, Fred Thomson and Patricia Smith.
