George Ashbridge Rhoads (1860-1935) built Indian Lot Cottage in 1927. Three Chimneys, 141 Clark Point Road, is visible behind and to the left of the trees. With all the visual aids from SWHPL 5525, and repeated searches, archivists could not locate the rocks in the old photographs or find the exact place where the people were sitting. The rocks were probably covered or removed when the land was cleared for the cottage and drive.

This picture was taken on a foggy morning from the entrance to the construction site during renovations to the hotel shortly after its purchase by Tim Harrington in September 2020. The photo shows the building in the process of being painted white. The top of the tower in the upper right is still painted yellow, the hotel's signature color for many years.

The photo above was taken from the dock of the Claremont Hotel. Greening Island is visible in the background. Image 1, taken 40 seconds later, shows Hieronymus tacking among the other boats. Image 2, taken 35 minutes before the start of the race, shows Hieronymus sailing out of Southwest Harbor toward Greening Island with the tip of Clark Point in the foreground. Crew: Joe Neilson, Spencer Nighman, Mary Kate Murray, Mel Steinberg, and Greg & Marc Crossley (on starboard side). The description that follows is from an Ellsworth American article on July 17, 2019 by Stephen Rappaport (see link below). ### At 2 p.m., about an hour after the cruising division began its race past Sutton Island, 15 Friendship sloops lined up between Clark Point and Greening Island for a race that would carry the fleet out into Great Harbor, to Spurling Rock off the corner of Great Cranberry Island, then to Bear Island off Northeast Harbor, the can buoy at the entrance to Somes Sound and back to a finish where the race began. A light sea breeze picked up as the race progressed then died with the fleet packed together off Bear Island, race committee chairman Scott Martin said Monday morning. As the tide turned, the breeze picked up giving the fleet a good race to the finish. About two hours after the start, first across the finish line was a local boat, Albert Neilson’s Hieronymous, built by Ralph Stanley in 1962 and still homeported in Southwest Harbor. Close behind was another local boat, Alice E, believed to have been launched in 1899 and sailed daily by Downeast Friendship Sloop Charters in Southwest Harbor. The Woods Hole, Mass.-based Hegira, launched in 1980, finished third. According to Martin, who raced on his own Eden, Mount Desert Island is home to the largest fleet of Friendship sloops — about a half-dozen — anywhere. “We’re blessed,” he said Monday. Martin hopes to start a regular series of Wednesday afternoon races for Friendship sloops after the upcoming Rockland rendezvous. “It will be very informal,” he said. “No handicaps.”

"I captured this scene from the end of the Manset Town dock. Though the view appears very wide, it's only about 90° from end to end. It seems wider because I shot it with a 200mm lens to get the detail along the shore with minimal water and sky. I stitched the panorama from 17 separate images taken left to right, each frame rotated 5° to the right of the previous one. Yesterday I saw this same scene while driving around to take the pictures posted here, but when I arrived at this spot the sun was too high and I didn't have my tripod with me. This morning I got up before dawn and set up my tripod on the snow-covered dock at 6:15 AM. Then I waited in the bitter cold for the sun to rise. Fresh snow that fell last night made the scene even better than it was yesterday. Sometimes it just works out that way. " -- George Soules
