Newport Historical Society: “Wild Goose Waters From Above”

Fly back in time and see Lake Sunapee as few have seen it. The Newport Historical Society will present a slide show, photo selections from Wild Goose Waters From Above, with Babe Sargent and Ron Garceau on Monday, Nov. 8th at 7 pm at the Sugar River Community Room, at the rear of 10 N. Main Street, Newport.

From a Piper Clipper in 1949 and 1950, John A. Sargent and his son John W. “Babe” Sargent used a surplus military camera to take hundreds of aerial photographs around Lake Sunapee. In 2009, SooNipi Publishing released a coffee table book with over 200 of these amazing black and white images. Guests will be able to learn about the project. Signed books will be available.
