Penobscot Bay Pilot’s wayback machine

Throwback Thursday

Okay, obviously this is a train. And it’s in Rockland. (There’s no fooling you!) But can you tell us what Armour was, and where exactly this location in Rockland is? Any stories to go with it as well?

Some good guesses on last week’s Throwback Thursday photo, but it wasn’t a smelt shack, a scow or even a buying station filled with booze (but Dana Smith you get points for being creative). It happened to be a houseboat on Round Pond owned by a man named Rodney Cook. The photo was taken June 1984.
