Email me if interested in this piece

This is another painting done from a vintage postcard. This is the entrance to an area called "Sacandaga Park."

Sacandaga Park was once known as the Coney Island of the North (1880 - 1930) and was located across the river from the Village of Northville in NY state. Numerous hotels, Inns, cottages, sports events & amusements were available for those who made the trek for vacation. The history of the area is abundant! Unfortunately, most of the hotels & inns were destroyed (fire, water, changing times). As the times changed, and the people stopped visiting, the events & amusements ended. 

Some of the individual homes/cottages still exist today & are used every summer by families who pass these "camps" down to the next generation. 

For anyone interested in the history, here is one of many links that can found online:

And here is the original postcard image, postmarked 1906:
