1945 Marks & Wilcox Customers
The War Years - Walter Marks & Charles Wilcox owned a fuel storage business in Old Forge for many years. They also operated the Pickle Boat on the Fulton Chain, a floating grocery store that delivered groceries to the docks of camps and hotels. The following list gives a rather compressive idea of the year-round fuel customers in the Old Forge region at a time when many families left to find work in the Mohawk Valley or went to live with loved ones when the head of a household entered the military service. The local newspaper - "The Adirondack Arrow" was never archived or microfilmed during 1942-1947.
