Chronicle Classic Photos: 1980-2016

By Sandra J. Hutchinson

I may be just a tad biased, but I think the current exhibit at the Chapman Historical Museum in Glens Falls is a MUST SEE.

The exhibit, which opened October 27, features nearly 100 photos from The Chronicle’s over 36 years of publication — images that illustrate intriguing human interest stories and community events that have defined recent decades. There are many familiar faces and photos of major events that have taken place in our region. The exhibit also includes some of the infamous April Fools front pages (remember the bridge across Lake George?).

Here’s one of the signature photos, taken by me, while aloft at the Adirondack Hot Air Balloon Festival.
