Description
 
A brochure for Attlean Lake Camps, a nature resort in Jackman, Maine, on the shores of Attlean Pond. It features twenty-two (22) guest log cabins, most with private baths, that can hold between 2 to 6 people each. The camp has a variety of activities available to their guests such as fishing, hiking, swimming, and canoeing. The camp also features a large dinning hall where a guest can enjoy their meals, or opt for 'to go' lunches. While billed as a family resort, it also calls itself a 'sportsman paradise' as they have stocked the 'lake' with trout and salmon. The camp itself was first founded in 1895, and in 1905 it was purchased by the Holden brothers, Henry Lincoln Holden (1873-1952) and Ruel Evinder Holden (1876-1944). The camp is still in existence today, under the name Attean Lake Lodge, and is run by descendants of Ruel Holden. There is a die cut window on the front cover of the brochure that reveals a black and white image of Attlean Pond. The wrappers themselves are a printed faux wood grain. 33 images from photographs, two of which are full page photo collages. The last page has list of 'General Information' on the camp, such as 'hay fever unknown', 'Reduced Rates for Children', 'Jackman contains two churches', and 'there is a flying field in Jackman confirming to government regulations.' 20 pages, printed wood grain wrappers, staple binding. Measures 9" x 6 1/2".
