The Brucedale Press announces the launch of LAKE CHARLES The Way It Was, the third in Lynne Porter’s chronicles of life in small communities of Georgian Bluffs.

Again she has  has researched, written, and illustrated family homes, businesses, and farms from early settlement up to the 1950s.

Lynne Porter is a lifelong resident of the area, born near Oxenden, and well known for her art, genealogical research, and background in small-town businesses.

Her first book, OXENDEN The Way It Was, a 2017 release, also from The Brucedale Press, portrayed twin villages that became one community. In 2019, Big Bay North Keppel The Way It Was appeared in print, with detailed drawings of schools, homes, a church, and a sawmill. Its pages also contain numerous photographs of long-ago residents.

Again, Lynne says, “I thank those who shared stories and photographs, and gave excellent answers  to my questions. It is delightful to have support and interest from people living near and far away from Lake Charles.”
