Historic Photographs and Film of Bucksport with NHF and the Penobscot Marine Museum
Historic photographs and archival film footage of Bucksport from the late 19th and early 20th centuries will be presented by Penobscot Marine Museum’s Kevin Johnson and Brook Minner of Northeast Historic Film on Thursday, May 12, 6:00 pm at Alamo Theater, 85 Main Street, Bucksport.
The photographs presented in the talk by Kevin Johnson will be of people and places which were important to the residents of Bucksport between 1909 and 1947. They were taken by a Belfast, Maine postcard company, Eastern Illustrating & Publishing Company, which sent their photographers driving across Maine in Model T’s with their box cameras to ask what the local citizens loved about their area.
The photographs presented in the talk are part of Hancock County Through Eastern's Eye, one of several travelling exhibits from the Penobscot Marine Museum photography archive. It is on display through the end of May at Bucksport Heart and Soul in the Rosen Building, 72 Main Street, Bucksport. Brook Minner, Executive Director of Northeast Historic Film Archive, will show historic film footage of Bucksport from their collection.
