Midcoast advertisements from a 1939 Snow Bowl Annual Report

Ski down Memory Lane, part 3

Continuing with our Memory Lane series this week in anticipation of the 24th Annual US National Toboggan Championships, we came across a vintage 1939 Snow Bowl Annual Report featuring some familiar names and places in the advertisements. We reached out to several folks whose family businesses been around a long time.

 “This ad is a great reminder of the rich history of the Camden area. Who would have imagined back then that the Snow Bowl would be embarking on a multi-million expansion and people from around the country would come here to experience Camden in the winter? And with our sponsorship of the Toboggan Championships and a major donation to the Ragged Mountain Recreation Area Foundation, we’re still happy to do our ‘bit’ to support our community.”
-Gregory A. Dufour, President and Chief Executive Officer

If you have a memory associated with the name of the business or the ad itself, please email us and we’ll build it into the story.
