Camp 133

Here's a little map from the Gazette of June 2, 1922, showing where Camp 133 was.

So, where present-day Liverpool Road crosses the Deep River, Camp 133 was on the west side of the road and the north side of the river.

A Calumet Region Historical Guide compiled as a WPA project and printed in 1939 devotes one short paragraph to Camp 133, explaining that it was "so named because 133 was the number of the local theatrical employee's union whose members established the camp in 1913."
