"The Charm and Beauty of Lake George and Lake Champlain Can Be Fully Enjoyed Only from the Steamer's Deck"
Two elegant maps, one shows both lakes from Albany to Montreal, and the other Lake George and environs in more detail. The former is signed by Green in the image and dated 1911. Green was a local painter, illustrator in the Buffalo area of upstate New York. He is best known for the work he did for the US government during World War I, creating the iconic Liberty Loan posters. He also accepted commissions for the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific Railroads, including The Apache Trail and The Grand Canyon; and created a visually striking panoramic view of Niagara Falls.
