It's HOT! So how about a visit from Jack Frost to cool you down? This early-1900s Winter Carnival postcard shows an icicle-covered Jack Frost riding through downtown Saranac Lake. Milo Miller's store, built in 1867, is visible behind the float. This building is the oldest standing commercial building in Saranac Lake and now houses Owl's Nest Pizza. This card was sent by a tuberculosis patient in 1909, and reads, "Wed. Morn. Had a good night, feel more like myself. How is this."
