"805.-Lake at Glen Iris"-(Reflection.)

"Views on the Line of the Erie Railroad"

L. E. Walker, Warsaw NY

circa 1870

The Glen Iris "Lake" is, of course, the pond and fountain that still can be seen in the Park today. Mr. Letchworth reportedly acquired the Canoe from the Great Lakes area, and it was often found hanging on the side of the Council House.

The enlarged view below also shows a rare glimpse across the gorge to the Slide Area. If you look closely, you will see the line of the Genesee Valley Canal being carried across the landslide area on a wooden aqueduct.
