9 Historic Photos That Show Us What It Was Like Living In Maine In The Early 1900s

Hearing about life in Maine back before any of us were here is a great way to understand the state a little bit better. Whether listening to history lessons in school or sitting in rapt attention as our grandparents talked about their lives, we’ve always been fascinated by stories about the state. One of the best ways to get a sense of all that came before is to look at old photos. We’ve gathered a few here that we think do a great job of allowing you to imagine Maine the way she was just after the Great Depression.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
