On the weekend of the 24th Annual US National Toboggan Championships, this is the last advertisement in our Memory Lane series. We came across a vintage 1939 Snow Bowl Annual Report featuring some familiar names and places in the advertisements and reached out to several locals whose family businesses have been around a long time.
Here’s a great response.
“Some things never change—we still love the Midcoast in winter. Hannaford Supermarkets started in Maine in 1883 and has been here ever since. So, we say again what we said in 1939: We hope the festival will be a great success!”
-Eric Blom, Hannaford spokesman
