Hope this looks familiar. Guesses?

There were a flurry of guesses for last week’s Throwback Thursday photo, but it appears the correct answer to where these row of buildings were located came from a member of the Facebook group: “You knew you grew up in Camden-Rockport when...”   Valerie Goodman said: “This is in Northport. My parents bought it in 1954(?) On the roof of the house was written ‘NUT HOUSE’ on the side headed to Belfast. I don't think I ever saw this picture, thanks for sharing. They sold GULF gas and opened a restaurant ‘Penobscot Bay Trading Post’ which later moved to Lincolnville Beach.
