That’s the life!
Fellow Lake Hopatcong Woody Boater Tom McGowan’s uncle Henry Leer bought the Beck Brothers boat ride and transport business on the Lake in 1947. Beck Brothers started in the 1920’s picking people up at the train and bringing them to their homes and providing tours around the lake.
This is just cool as all get out
Tom shared these photos with the Lake Hopatcong Historical Museum, and now we are sharing them with the fine citizens of Woodyboaterville. A huge thanks to our Lake Hopatcong chief correspondent Bob Kays for the gift of un captioned goodies.
