Hahah, yes I’m that “true Maineiac”. I remember when I was younger, my sister would make hand prints in the top of the snow but she would have to pick me so that I could see them because the top of the snow was up over my head. I still love the snow.
These are great. My daughter, now of NYC but a Maine native, sent them up. This is the “olde” Maine that all the nostalgia and cache’ was built on-as you can see-it was mostly hard work and simple living-not the cutesy small town, many now full of shops owned by out-of-staters selling stuff to the tourists and transplants..
If you like this sort of thing-look for the book “Midnight Train at Wiscasset Station” great period pics during the 30′s.
