Progress continues on the Virtual Trolley Tour of Maine
October already! A busy summer and fall here at the Seashore Trolley Museum Library. Our intrepid intern Chris has gone off to graduate school in archival studies. He did a great job this summer selecting destinations and scanning photographs. Thank you, Chris! We miss you!
Our total number of destinations is now fourteen - and we're having to leave some out! Can't find any photographs of The Pines in Norridgewock, just a reference on a map. Current destinations are:
York Beach and St. Aspinquid Park, York Cape Porpoise Casino, Cape Porpoise Riverton Park, Portland Willard Beach, Portland Cape Cottage Theater and Casino, Cape Elizabeth Underwood Casino, Falmouth Lake Grove, Auburn Merrymeeting Park, Brunswick New Meadows Inn, West Bath Casco Castle, Freeport Tacoma Inn, Litchfield Lake Cobbosseecontee Island Park, Manchester Lakewood Park, Madison Oakland Park, Rockport
The greatest challenge is selecting the tastiest pictures and keeping that selection down to one or two. Or maybe three. OK, possibly four. See what I mean? Above, the Rockland, Thomaston, & Camden Street Railway's open car #9 disembarking at the trolley stop at Oakland Park. These lucky day tourists will spend the day picnicking and watching the latest motion picture.
