  • Clark the Printer, Ellsworth
  • Southwest Harbor, Manset
"Clark the Printer" was owned by Walter J. Clark Jr. (1882-1942) "An ingenious ability that has enabled him to surmount all obstacles has brought Walter J. Clark, Jr., to the position of one of the leaders in the business life of Ellsworth. Mr. Clark operates the modern and efficient printing shop at No. 360 Water Street, conducting the business under the name of Clark the Printer. His advance has been steady and sure ever since the early days in the business when the first printing press he owned was a crude, wooden affair made by himself. Walter J. Clark, Jr., received his education in the local public schools and after completing his schooling entered the printing business independently in 1903. His creative ability and determination to succeed were his greatest assets. He carried on his trade with the aid of his personally constructed press until he prospered sufficiently to afford the purchase of a small Kelsey Press, which he installed and used for about a year. Business increased rapidly and he bought a small Liberty Press and later added a Gordon Press continuing to add new equipment and machinery to accommodate the ever increasing demands for his work…" – “Maine Biographies” by Harrie B.
