From no less an authority than Sam Sherman, I got the information on the pool and billiard parlors in Saranac Lake:

Sam told me that, early in 1916, Fisher and Schugers had a bowling and billiard parlor under the Pontiac Theater.  In 1919, Imar Works bought out Mr. Schugers. In 1927 the theater was enlarged, and the basement part was closed. In 1928, Sam, who had been working down there since 1918, bought out Jerry Childs, who had the parlors upstairs at 6 Broadway. In Feb., 1932, Sam moved into the Altman block, when that opened.

He recalls that a Mr. LaPlane had a billiard room on Bloomingdale Avenue, and later in the Alpine Hotel. Also that there was a billiard room in the Riverside Hotel. And that Mr. Fisher once had a place on Main Street, years ago.
