If you want stories about this old river, which are extremely impressive, you need to talk with Rich “Woody” Woodman. Woody is a master boatbuilder and grew up on this river. Next summer make sure you get up there to sail with him (http://home.gwi.net/~lazyjack/eleanor.htm). In the winter a bunch of the old salts in town get together and tell stories in Woody’s boat house on the river. It’s about as authentic as you can get.
Whoah love the photos
I adore these. Is it possible to order reprints from Detroit’s archive?
Wow! I used to vacation in Kennabunkport Maine as a kid (and I want to get back there at some point) loved the river. The photogeek in me wonders are these scans from the plates or from the prints?
