Vintage Dandy: Mont Pleasant Lodge, No 717

While deleting some photos from my camera I rediscovered some I took at the Gild Hall in New York City last fall.  Right outside the restroom is a massive (4' x 6') framed series of photos from the Mont Pleasant Lodge, No 717, apparently some sort of fraternal organization in Schenectady, New York dating back to the late 1800's.  Based on the "DECEASED" on the bottom I'm guessing that this was a memorial to the members who had passed away.
