Excerpt from Howard Riley's column

Dr. Leonard Bristol's daughter, Noreen Bristol Oslander, wrote, "Neighborhood kids on Baker Street, who all played together, often in the street, included the Clarks, Ryans, Nelsons, Sagemans and Pohls. Like all the neighborhoods in Saranac Lake in the '50s, it was a great and safe neighborhood in which to grow up surrounded with caring families who all looked out for each other."

In 1948 and '50, it was the home of Raymond W. Burleigh, proprietor of the Economy Market on Broadway.
