Imagine arriving at Scarborough in the late 1800s, stepping out of your train car onto the platform, and becoming one of the many visitors enjoying the summer beauty of coastal Maine. This pictorial history transports us back to an exciting era in Scarborough's long history—a simpler time, when shore dinner houses and trolley cars were the latest attractions. The images contained in this volume—many of them rare and previously unpublished—feature early automobiles, old homesteads, and summer cottages, as well as unique views of violent shipwrecks and bustling stagecoaches. Through this significant and entertaining collection we experience Prout's Neck the way artist Winslow Homer knew it and everyday life the way that Scarborough photographer Charles F. Walker captured it on film for future generations to marvel at.
