Camp Being Built
Fogler Special Collections, Still Image

Postcard of a camp being built on the wooded shore of a pond or lake. Writing on back reads: "First photo (taken Aug. 15) of the new Camp just in process of building on East Shore Keoka Lake among the pines. Not very good but we'll have some better ones when all is finished. Outside work is now all done and men begin to-morrow on interior. Will be completed in two weeks more. Looks very well and we're all 'just crazy' over it. I've worked myself into rheumatism and all sorts of aches and pains, but keep right on trying to work them off. JM."
