This photograph was taken from Freeman Ridge. Compare this photograph to SWHPL 5220 for a view of the same scene circa 1888 - 1897. The library is most grateful to photographer Rogier van Bakel of Eager Eye Photo, who came with his quad-copter mounted camera from Somesville to volunteer his time and expertise to make a companion piece to our circa 1888 photograph of Clark Point.

  • Southwest Harbor
The first lobster boat in the foreground, on the dock, M2721A, may have been built by Rich & Grindle for George Dolliver. The excursion boat "Seal" in the center of the photograph was built by Normand Joseph Bouchard for Linwood Boynton Wedge (1913-1961) and Woodrow Wilson Herrick (1914-2002) to be used as a dragger. "Seal" was owned by Samuel A. Blanchard (1926-2009) who took out fishing parties on her. - Information from Ralph Stanley 05/2011 The boat to the right of "Seal" was "Eva Anita" a 40' lobster boat built in 1959 by Bunker & Ellis for Wesley Bracy of Great Cranberry Island.

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.

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.
