This is What Maine Looked like 100 Years Ago…It May Surprise You

Maine has one of the richest histories of all the states in the USA. From colonial settlers making their way North, to great destructive fires, we’ve just about seen it all. Take a trip down memory lane by looking through this collection of photographs, vintage postcards and drawings and see if you recognize anything that still stands today. It’s hard to believe that this is what Maine looked like 100 years ago!

Have you been to any of the places depicted here? Have any old photos you’d like to share? You can always submit them to us via email or the Only in Maine Facebook page.

Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
