Penobscot Bay Pilot’s wayback machine

Throwback Thursday

    Submitted to us by The Rockland Historical Society, can you guess where this is and what year?

    We had more than 30 guesses on last week’s Throwback Thursday photo and Mish Morgenstern was the first to guess correctly. It was indeed Freedom Village cica 1900 at the Post Office Square. Note the skyline of this image which does not include telephone and telegraph wires. Perhaps it was taken before rural electrification reached Freedom, Maine.
