We'd love to get your old photos
Do you have historic old photos of people or places around Southwest Harbor? We'd love to have them - just to scan. We'll bring a portable computer and scanner to you home, and capture the image while you wait. The photos never have to leave your kitchen table.

Sample historic photos
Main Street, Southwest Harbor, looking toward what is now the Village Green Veteran's Park and First National Bank, in the aftermath of the March 1922 fire that destroyed the Holmes Hotel, Holmes Store, a private residence, and the original 1897 Odd Fellows building that stood on the site of the current Dry Dock Inn and Café.
Newman Store - Ward Parker, Ward Newman, Guy Cleveland, Molly Newman, and Lyle Newman (the barber) taken about 1900. In the 1950's it was known as Welton's store, and in the 1960's it was the post office and the store.
This is looking up Dirigo Road from the Clark Point Road.
This is the Moorings Inn, looking from the water.
This is the building on Clark Point Road that was later The Lawler Paint Company and is now Coastline Construction.
This is the Park Theater and Jim's Place, later McEachern and Hutchins hardware store, torn down by Les and Janet McEachern in the late fall of 2008 to make way for a larger, improved store.
This is Newman Wharf on the left and Parker Wharf on the right. The Parker wharf location is where Hinckley's dock is now.
