Provided to the Tahoe Daily Tribune. The Fallen Leaf Lake Lodge in 1914 is one of the sites Bill Craven will discuss at the Lake Tahoe Historical Society meeting.

Bill Craven, a longtime South Shore resident, will present a slide show with narrative at 7 p.m. June 20 at the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library, 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd.

He will show photos of Fallen Leaf Lake, Glen Alpine and Camp Richardson, dating from 1985 to the 1920s, that will fascinate history buffs. The slides also will show contrasts in vegetation, then and now. In the early days, the Washo annually burned the vegetation, providing defensible space to prevent firestorms.

The program is sponsored by the Lake Tahoe Historical Society and is free of charge. Refreshments will be served following the program.
