Abstract/ Summary

A selection of eight photographs from the Northeast Archives of Folklore and Oral History has been reproduced as postcards and are being sold by the Society...

The black and white photographs date from the early 1900's and show the North Lincoln sorting gap with crew, river drivers and a batteau in the St. John Allagash region, a pair of horses with woodsmen on top of Mt. Chase, a lumber crew with horses posed in front of a woods camp, the steamboat M. E. Shaw at the Forest City landing on Spednic Lake with townspeople ready for the annual Fourth of July picnic, the cook and family in the cook's part of a lumber camp at Smyrna Mills, a hunter beside a large moose on a game pole, and a pair of horses named Joe and Charlie hauling a load of logs in Fryeburg.

Future sets of cards will feature farming, fishing, lumbering, river driving , and hunting. Sales have been excellent thus far and it look like we should have printed more than 500 sets.
