Monday's Postcard: Big Moose Lake, NY

This is an antique postcard and was not sent by any one I know. I just like the story behind it.
In the spirit of Halloween, this postcard has a murder attached to it. The Glenmore Lodge on Big Moose Lake was the setting of Theodore Dreiser's An American Tragedy, based on a true murder which took place there in 1906. An American Tragedy was made into the movie A Place in the Sun with Elizabeth Taylor. Another good book about this story is A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly.

Gotta love the whole "Moose" aspect of it, as well.
