That a contrast to visit the town of Thousand Island Park in the winter. It’s like seeing a ghost painting by Charles Petterson. You can imagine and hear the sounds, colors and activity of summer superimposed on the blank canvas of winter.
Looking across this open field where several buildings and a grand hotel once stood before a fire destroyed them, and most of the rest of the town, near the turn of the century. At the far end of the field on the banks of the St. Lawrence River stands a regal looking Victorian home known as the “Iron House”. Its metal siding was what saved it from the raging fire and it was one of the few surviving structures.
Reproduced, finally, from a watercolor painting by Giclee printing.
