This great photo can be found at the Boothbay Region Historical Society and online in the Boothbay Region Maritime Foundation Research Collection. Can anyone identify its location or tell us the story behind it?

The Boothbay Region Maritime Foundation Research Collection

A Community Sourced Digital Archive

The Boothbay Region Maritime Foundation Research Collection is a community sourced digital archive of commercial fishing and working waterfront photos from the Boothbay Region's past and its present.

It is a collaboration among the Penobscot Marine Museum (PMM), the Boothbay Region Historical Society (BRHS), and BRMF. Contributors loan their photos for digitization by professional archivists at the Penobscot Marine Museum. Digital copies are added to an online collection that is accessible to the public FREE of charge. Donors include the Department of Marine Resources, the Boothbay Register, and the Boothbay Harbor Memorial Library as well as individuals from the region. This is an ongoing project.
