Launched from Rockland’s Cobb-Butler & Co. shipyard in 1906, the 80-foot steamer MAY ARCHER ran summers from Thomaston to Monhegan where this photo was taken in 1915, and sometimes took the winter run from Rockland to Mt. Desert Island. In later life, until she burnt in 1934, she served Isles of Shoals, Boston, Providence, Newport, and Block Island.
