Hey kid at the very front, nice boots too!
Lobster Dude’s kit looks unreal – glasses, hat, coat combo is insane.
Time is short.
“Lobster dude” looks like the dad from “One Morning in Maine”.
Going skiing this weekend. I hope I catch some air like that!
awesome. needed that.
Do you have any idea of where in Maine these might have been taken?
Hey kid in the front, aside from loving your boots, I also love your expression. It’s how I felt trudging to work this morning.
NYC’s got nothing on Maine, I see. Snowpocalypse, shmopocalypse…
– Most impressive. We have a “True Mainiac” in our family… born at home in Freeport Maine. So we just love these photos. Thanks for sharing them.
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.
Thanks for posting these amazing photos. Love the lobster dudes chore jacket.
Damn – Those are some fine boots! Want me’n a pair.
Kinda looks a little Nazi though…
Nothing wrong with a bit of nazi Scott. I’d say style/design is one of a few things they did somewhat right.
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.
@ Kevin – agreed.
Random Shout out (if you haven’t browsed already) :
Love that ‘Time is Short’ motivational poster/banner in the snowshoe factory.
Excellent photos – like the schoolgirl, the snow and the man with the lobster pots.
These are fantastic. The snowshoe factory and lobstermen shots — I needed this after shoveling out. Makes winter feel a whole lot sweeter.
Flannel madness in the logging shot.
the boy’s boots remind me a bit of the ones we all wore growing up in the 80s – http://www.etsy.com/listing/65188430/vintage-1970s-tall-winter-duck-boots-in
pretty impossible to find anymore.
I like the pro-nazi vibe of some of these comments. brutal dictatorships have the dopest style.
y’all talking about 14 words?
More emphasis then on what you got done than on how you looked doing it.
We can’t all conquer the world……….. though we’ll die tryin… surely.
A second nod to the boots… maybe a third, lost count:
just get it done people…..think were all way too hooked on immediate gratification….love these photos !
hey the boots are cool enough but the sweater is great, or it would be in a size 44 in my closet. great photos!
Hi, Thanks so much for sharing these. I was born in Maine and lived there most my life, My Dad was also born here in 44. Do you have more of these or know where i can find more of them????. It brought back fond memories for my family
Love the boots!
Why would any of you, even in jest, insert the mention of Nazis when these photos depict Americans during WWII who were sacrificing their lives to fight fascism?
