History of Damariscotta Lake Told Through Photographs
Local authors team up on new book
The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Damariscotta Lake from local authors Edmée Déjean, Julia McLeod, Mary Sheldon and Marilyn Speckmann. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images and memories of days gone by.
Damariscotta Lake, the link between the towns of Jefferson, Newcastle, and Nobleboro, has always had a unique allure. Each spring, thousands of alewives return from the Atlantic Ocean to struggle up the fish ladder at Damariscotta Mills and reach their traditional spawning grounds. Many early settlers made a living through shipbuilding, milling, farming, and harvesting ice, wood, and alewives.

History of Bar Harbor Told Through Postcards
By Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr.
Bar Harbor, $21.99, Arcadia Publishing. Available at local retailers, online bookstores, or through Arcadia Publishing at www.arcadiapublishing.com or (888) 313-2665
Arcadia’s latest Maine postcard book is now available! Written by two-time Maine State Historian Earle G. Shettleworth Jr., the History of Bar harbor is an excellent pictorial of Bar Harbor’s illustrious past. Filled with images and rich narration you can relive the glorious past of this destination community from Maine’s bygone days.
Shettleworth divides the book into nine sections covering topics from transportation to the community, its downtown area, public buildings and private mansions as well as her legendary hotels and latter day rental cabins and motels. Also covered is the social and recreational life of the latter 19th and early 20th century, the 1947 fire that devastated the area and scenic vistas.
If you love Maine history as much as I do, this book, as well as Arcadia’s many other Maine postcard pictorials will make a great addition to your library.
