Old Orchard Beach, Maine – 1904


Old Orchard, Maine, circa 1904. “Alberta and Velvet hotels.” 8×10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company. Black and White original found at Shorpy, wonderful colorization done by /u/kibblenbits


Modern shot from approximately the same angle, dug up by /u/HarvieBirdman.

My wife grew up in Maine, and I’ve spent several summers there. It’s a beautiful place.
