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.
