  • Bar Harbor
George Soules photographed the interior of the Criterion from the balcony with a Canon 5D Mark III DSLR and a Canon 24mm tilt/shift lens using available light, which there was little of. To the naked eye, the space does not look nearly this bright. The first image (angle view) is a four-slice panorama with a 140° field of view. It is a composite of 12 different frames. The second image (straight-on view) is a six-slice panorama with a 190° field of view. It is a composite of 18 different frames. Both images were shot at f/8, ISO 400, with three different exposures for each slice. Exposures ranged from 10 seconds for the main room to 1/25th second for the chandelier.

  • 130 Shore Road
This photograph was taken before the Manset shore was filled in. – According to Ralph Warren Stanley (1929-), the White boat hauled up on shore in front of the William Spurling Newman house at 102 Shore Road, Map 17 – Lot 100 – was probably built by Leslie “Les” M. Rice (1883-1966) on Great Cranberry Island for William “Uncle Jimmy” Doane Stanley (1855-1950). She was built as a double ender. Someone bought her and put a square stern on her. Work was slow at Hinckleys for awhile so Bill Dunham (Wilfred Manson Dunham (1918-2001) and Lewis Tapley (Lewis Merton Tapley (1916-1985) bought her and went fishing, though not for long. Work picked up at the Hinckley yard soon afterward. The vessel was then bought by Abner W. Lunt (1908-1975), then she was bought by Luther C. Faulkingham (1901-1993) of Prospect Harbor, where she was the last time Ralph saw her. The wharf building with the false front was the building that Francis “Frank” Thompson Chalmers Sr. (1893-1985), F. Dwight Perkins (1902-1981) and Merton S. Alley (1904-1985) had a car dealership in. Almon Frank Ramsdell Sr’s (1873-1946) garage was there later. Hinckley may have owned the building when this picture was taken. James “Jim” M. Willis (1919-2006) later ran “The Boathouse” there.

According to Nick Voulgaris, author of "Hinckley Yachts: An American Icon" published by Rizzoli in 2014, page 32, "this is one of the earliest photographs of a Hinckley using the now iconic Talaria logo on its hulls (seen on the boat to the far right)." The boat is shown with its number, I-K-277. Talaria Noun: (In Roman mythology) winged sandals as worn by certain gods and goddesses, especially Mercury. Origin: Latin, neuter plural of talaris, from talus "ankle" - “talaria,” Oxford Dictionaries, 2014, Accessed online 09/06/2014; http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/talaria The best known image of Mercury wearing talaria is Winged Mercury, one of four sculptures done by Gian Bologna, born as Jean Boulogne (1529-1608), the most famous of which is in the Bargello National Museum in Florence, Italy.

The automobile to the right of the vessel is a circa 1948 Jeep CJ (Civilian Jeep) Note the peavey stuck into the ground (above the “O” on the “DETOUR” sign). A peavey is a logging tool with a wooden shaft and metal hook invented in 1857 by blacksmith Joseph Daniel Peavey (1799-1873) of Stillwater, Maine, as a refinement to the cant hook to manhandle logs on logging runs. The Peavey Manufacturing Co. is still located in Maine (Eddington, Maine) and manufactures several variations.
