Maine on Glass: The Early Twentieth Century in Glass Plate Photography An Illustrated Talk​

January 29 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Fascinating historic photographs taken from 1909 to 1950 of a Maine which has almost completely disappeared are the subject of the new book Maine on Glass: The Early Twentieth Century in Glass Plate Photography by Maine State Historian Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr., Penobscot Marine Museum Photo Archivist Kevin Johnson, and historian Bill Bunting. The photographs were originally taken to be made into postcards during the postcard craze of the early 1900s when billions of postcards were mailed world-wide. The photographs show Mainers at work and at play everywhere from lobster shacks and wilderness hunting camps, to steam and sailing ships and grand hotels. On Sunday, January 29th at 2:00 pm, Boothbay Railway Village presents an illustrated talk about Maine on Glass: The Early Twentieth Century in Glass Plate Photography with authors Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr., Kevin Johnson, and Bill Bunting. The talk will take place inside the Museum’s 1847 Boothbay Town Hall. Admission is free, suggested donation of $5 appreciated.
