Here is yet another sampling from the collection of 35mm negatives I donated to Penobscot Marine Museum (PMM) in 2013.  They’re not yet on the PMM website so I’m deeply grateful for allowing OCH this preview. This group is  from the mid 1980s.

There are many more images of all kinds, and by a variety of photographers, that you can view on the Museum’s website. Click here and you’ll go directly to PMM’s photo collections where, to date, there are over 100,000 pictures to look at. At this point the PMM site, based on the Past Perfect cataloging application, is cumbersome to navigate, but believe me, there is some really great stuff there. High-quality enlargements of any image can be ordered; just click here.

Speaking of clicking, remember that any of the following photos can be enlarged simply by clicking on it. You’ll see small arrows at the left and right borders of the enlargement that enable you to scroll from photo to photo without returning to this page. There’s also a slideshow option as well.
