As part of the monthly program series of The Glens Falls-Saratoga Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club, join us for “An Adirondack Portfolio 1902-1935- The Hiking Stories and photographs of Francis Bayle” Presented by Bob Bayle
Bob Bayle’s new book features the photographs and writing of his father Francis Bayle. While his vocation was engineering, Francis’ avocations were exploring the Adirondacks and photography. Between the years 1910 and 1970, he took many hundreds of photographs of the Adirondack region, providing a unique representation of what the area looked like in the early 20th century. He was an active member of the Adirondack Mountain Club and the Glens Falls Camera Club. He also served as editor for the Adirondack Mountain Club magazine, writing several articles about his photography, hiking trips and opinions about the Adirondacks.
Bob Bayle is the son of Francis Bayle, and a retired science teacher, who is actively involved with the Glens Falls-Queensbury Historical Society, Chapman Historical Museum and the Warren County Historical Society. He is co-author of 3 Images of America books about Glens Falls, New York.
