Once again, Chad, you have done an outstanding job of preserving memories. I’m at an age where I am starting to forget stuff so memory jogs help! As you know, I like the whole history from Glen Springs through Padua so here is a picture I came across. Reggie

Sorry, guys, I should have responded sooner. You can always date a picture of Glen Springs (at least approximately) by the architecture. The north wing is present (1902); there is a third floor on both old and new north wings (circa 1903); but there is no third floor on original part of south wing (sometime between 1904-1906); porches are still open (enclosed 1910); Palm Room still present but no rooftop solarium (Palm Room removed in 1912 when new south wing was built and rooftop solarium was added); new south wing opened May 1, 1913. That makes the date of the picture closer to 1903.

I suspect that the image was sometime prior to 1913 which is when I believe the newest wing was added.

Great picture of the Glen Springs! Anything known about it, e.g., approximate time? It does not appear to be a photograph.
