Michelle's life is a colorful map of exploration and adventure. From the iconic streets of New York to the sunny shores of Florida, the jagged coast of Maine to the rugged terrain of Montana, she's been fortunate to call some of America's most beautiful states home. Beyond the U.S., Michelle's wanderlust has taken her on a motorcycle journey through India, led her to teach English in Hanoi, and saw her studying Spanish in Guatemala. Michelle graduated with a communications degree from the S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and in addition to a career in advertising has worked with OnlyInYourState since 2016, where her love for travel and storytelling converges. Alongside writing and exploring, Michelle finds joy in photography, staying active, and time with her family.

One of the most wonderful things about Maine is the history that surrounds us. In almost every city and town there exists a piece of the past, left over from years before, that can be seen simply by looking up. But, what was Maine like before we were here? While we can see the buildings and sometimes remains of old signage, what did it feel like? Every so often we catch ourselves imagining the trolleys and the hard working folks and businesses that kept our towns thriving. If you do this too, you’ll love the world of truly unique then and now photos from Maine that one local Bangor photographer has created!
These photos were all created by Bangor photographer, Rick Haney who grew up in and still lives in the area. You can see the website dedicated to this incredible project here. The Ghosts of Bangor Facebook Page has even more photos, along with some wonderful conversation between other Mainers about their own memories of these photos. And, consider getting yourself a calendar (found on the website) for a monthly reminder of Maine’s history.
And, to watch these photos transform before your eyes, watch this incredible video!
