A travel guide encouraging visitors to consider Bar Harbor now that "No longer as in days gone by is the visitor obliged to cross the Island from Southwest Harbor by the circuitous route, through Somesville nor, as later, to depend upon a single line of steamers, making the trip two or three times a week, to reach Bar Harbor, for since 1884, there is an all-rail route to within eight miles of Bar Harbor wharf, and safe ferry boats always in waiting to convey passengers across the intervening space, known as Frenchman's Bay."
