In this photo published in the Times on July 12, 1941, Fresh Air Fund children arrive in Watertown to spend two weeks in homes throughout Jefferson County. The 231 children had just gotten off the ‘Fresh Air Special’ and were waiting to enter the New York Central railroad station. The Fresh Air Fund is still active in the north country, although fewer children are served nowadays.
