Return To Kavanagh’s

I first profiled Kavanagh’s Tourist Camp, in March 2007.

I recently came across the postcard above, it was dated 1933.

It shows the building, prior to the new cafeteria shown in the post from 2007:

The garage in the back of the house in the photo above, still read “GAS”. I always figured they were using their garage to advertise, but this card shows that the garage was originally the gas office.

In the photo above (shot in 2007) you can see the little garage and the cafeteria building still stand.
