A Peek Inside Powel Crosley's Canadian Island Hunting Lodge

Here's a snapshot taken in the great room of Powel Crosley, Jr.'s hunting lodge, located on an island he owned on MacGregor Bay in Canada. Eugene F. MacDonald (head of Zenith) maintained a similar "camp" on a nearby island.

The lodge is screened by trees in the B&W photo. Note Crosley's Douglas Dolphin amphibian resting at anchor, and the radio tower on the hillock in front of the cabin. The aerial wire ran between this tower and one on the peak of the lodge's roof. Click pictures for larger images.

(NOTE: To see where else Powel Crosley, Jr. spent his time, have a look at this post showing his first house, and my post about Crosley's Pinecroft Mansion in Cincinnati. To learn more about the Crosley estate in Florida, Sea Gate, see
