Vintage Views of Maine: Old Postcards

I have a new feature coming up on Serene New England: Scans from my vintage Maine postcard collection! I’ll be featuring views of places, restaurants, motels, inns and street views that are either no longer in existence or have changed dramatically over the decades. It’s a fun way to be transported back in time. Wayne and I hope you’ll enjoy looking at them as much as we do.

Shown above is a Plastichrome by Colourpicture Publishers, Boston, published by Don Sieburg, New London, New Hampshire: “Pleasant Mountain Chairlift and Ski Area near Bridgton, Maine. The 4,300 foot chairlift sightseers in summer and skiers in winter. From the summit, scores of lakes and mountains in Maine and New Hampshire can be seen. Photo by Bill Bardsley.” No date given, circa 1950s. Today it’s known as Shawnee Peak.
