Overview
Located on the coast just eight miles south of Portland, Scarborough was fertile territory for the dramatic changes that swept over eastern Maine in the twentieth century. This history transports the reader from Scarborough's simpler days as a small coastal community to its current status as the fastest growing town in the state. The images contained in this volume, most of them previously unpublished, showcase advances in transportation, the growth of business, old homesteads, and portraits of some of the movers and shakers of the time. This significant collection offers an overview of the history that shaped today's Scarborough.
