When asked about the photo, Frank Maguire replied: ''Interesting photo.  It's not earlier than 1950, since Bates Cabin is in place.  The 'ell' (kitchen area) between the farmhouse and barns in the Training Center is the original one, not the new one built in 1952, and the cellar entrance under the north barn is wide open, as if they were still working on the building.   I'd say that it must be between 1950 and 1952, and I guess it must have been one of the council camporees.  The snow bothers me - you can see it piled up behind the barn as well as on the trails in the background.  I was at the 1952 council camporee held there, but I surely don't remember there being any snow left around in May!''
