Historic Camden

Penobscot Marine Museum has a collection of historic photos featuring the Midcoast but the photos have little to no information to accompany them.

Where Wayfarer Marine's Travelift now operates, the Camden Yacht Building and Railway Co. used to have two railways, one of them with enough capacity to handle vessels like the 465-ton schooner William Mason. Next to her is one of the island steamers hauled out on the yard's smaller railway.

Those who have further information about the photo should comment online at knox.villagesoup.com, email news@courierpublicationsllc.com or write Camden Herald, 113 Washington St., Camden ME, 04843.

Readers are invited to submit mystery photos of their own as well, either in person at the Camden Herald office or via email.
