We are trying to locate an original print of this photograph of the teahouse at Comey's Lake. The Wenonah Environmental Commission plans to make a permanent sign to place in the teahouse regarding its history and current usage/care. We have photocopies of this image but higher resolution would be better for reproduction. If anyone has an original print and would allow it to be scanned and used for this purpose, please contact me or anyone on the Environmental Commission. Thank You!
Donald G. Gehring shared this 1938 photo of the 130' wooden bridge across the north end of Warner's lake. Notice the small bridge across to the right. There were several of these around the lake where small springs flowed. You could walk around the lake w/o getting
mud on your shoes. Kids are Doug & Don Gehring.
A tower built in the lake offered a high platform for diving.
This ticket booth, which is thought to be from the Wenonah Train Station, was donated to the Wenonah Historical Society by David Sporer, Jr. Thanks, Dave!!!

Undated, unused color post card of the Ferry Boat Baltic, Camden, N.J.
Scott Barnes found details on the Baltic. The ferryboat Baltic was launched by the West Jersey Ferry Co. in 1881. Shortly thereafter, in 1883, the Pennsylvania Railroad took control of the company to block the Reading from doing the same. This is laid out in a 1921 book "Old Ferries of Camden, NJ" that has been scanned into text form and is in the list below this page.
Wenonah was built around the railroad station and an easy commute to Philadelphia.
