The "Doris" was a steamship that plied the waters of Lake Placid from 1938 to 1950, afterwhich she was replaced by the Doris II. She carried mail and passengers mostly to private landings all along the lake. Here are a couple postcards featuring the ship, followed by a couple of 1938 photos. In one my great uncle and aunt, John Armitage Hartpence and Hannah Lydia Longmore Hartpence sit on the upper deck fantail. My father is sitting on the lap of a man I can't identify to their right.
