Lake Winnipesaukee, in northern New Hampshire, has been a summer recreational paradise for over 100 years. Starting in the 1930s Dr. John Perley filmed the boating action on this big New England lake. Filming through the 1960s, his camera caught boat races and hundreds of private pleasure craft. See the famous Mt. Washington in action and in color. See mail boats including the Uncle Sam. You’ll see classic wooden boats: private runabouts, pleasure craft, work boats and commercial boats of all kinds and large passenger boats. We also see a small steam boat still in action and visit the engine room of the MS Mt. Washington. Perley also filmed the smoldering remains of the Mount the morning after she burned. He also filmed the reconstruction of the new Mt. Washington II, including her launch in Paugus Bay and her first trip in the lake at Weirs Beach.
