Can You Identify This Historical Photo?

Local historians dig into their archives.

Each week, we will feature a local historical photo from the archives of either Sally Spanburgh, a Southampton preservation advocate, or the Hampton Bays Historical Society and ask readers to guess what is pictured, the date the photo was taken and/or what is there today.

If you think you know the answer, let us know in the comment section below. We will let you know if you're right next Sunday when we post the next photo challenge.

Last week's photo, according to Brenda Berntson, of the Hampton Bays Historical Society was of a home on  Fanning Ave. in Hampton Bays that was used as a dorm for Camp Upton, which was located to Brookhaven. The photo was taken in 1934 and the house still stands with some new additions.

That may have been the "Casino" near what is now the east end of Bay Avenue.

The original Shinnecock Casino,but I was told it was located between Lynn Court and Comarandts Point.

I grew up on Riverdale Drive, and we used to go down to the end of Lynn Court all the time to swim in the bay - there was an old staircase that led to the ruins of what I'm guessing once was that little cabana on the left of the picture.

the little cabana housed the casino generator
