Mountain Lake in 1924

I'm attaching an old photo taken of Mountain Lake in 1924. My dad, Melvin W. Van Hart (1910-2002), was at that place as a boy scout that year, and I dug this photo out of the proverbial shoe box of photos. He was also at a boy scout camp the year before, 1923, but those photos are labeled "Rocky Point." Perhaps the same place(?), but they don't show any scenery like the 1924 shot. I thought you might find the old photo interesting.

Mountain Lake Postcard from 1950's

My family use to summer at the lake going back to the 1950’s and my wife and I own property on the lake. I found this old postcard that might be of interest. On the back it reads: Mountain Lake Bathing Beach R.D. Belvidere, N.J. Turn right at Butzville on U.S. 46 halfway between New York and Scranton. Picnic Tables, Bathing, Boating, Refreshment Stand.
