13 Rare Photos From Maine That Will Take You Straight To The Past

We’ve done a few different posts including rare images of old Maine, but when we came across these we photos of Vinalhaven, we knew it was time for another one. If you’ve been to any of the islands off the coast of our state, you know how incredibly small-town they feel. They are, in some ways, a perfect representation of the way Maine once was. These photos of mid-1950s Vinalhaven will prove that life was slow and deliberate, much like it is in many places today.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
