Souvenir Album of Lake County, Indiana; 1906,
by E.E. Woodcock and Clyde R. King
Transcribed and Formatted by ©K. Torp
Note: The Display of this Souvenir Album has been altered from the original format -
pictures are grouped with their topics whenever possible, which is not quite the way the original album was done.
All pictures have been re-sized and reformatted to ensure quick download times.
This whole book took quite a bit of time and work to set-up here, so please respect my work and do NOT take any of these pictures to post to ANY other website.
You may of course copy data and/or pictures to your own computer's hard drive for your own family research purposes.
And, I'm sorry if your folks aren't mentioned in this album, but please remember that I did not write the history, I only transcribed what was written in 1906. Some of the towns were quite young at that time and not much (or nothing) was included about them in this book.
