Throwback Thursday: Culler Lake Tranquility

Posted on 04.24.14 – History, People & Places, Throwback Thursdays

The nonprofit Friends of Baker Park will start the organization’s long-term plan to clean and beautify Culler Lake this year. This week’s Throwback Thursday photo, which shows how the lake appeared nearly 54 years ago, was taken by Nicholas Yinger, who wrote an accompanying caption: “Culler Lake Tranquility. Mirror of still waters on a quiet Sunday. Looking north from south bank of lake to West Second Street just back of stone skater’s shelter. Note new North West 50 inch surface storm drain, left center bank … Sunday afternoon, July 3, 1960. Photo by Nick Yinger.” Photo courtesy Historical Society of Frederick County.
