Vintage Maine


Chris and I collected vintage Maine (and some New Hampshire) postcards to use as part of our wedding, aren't the designs cool? My favorite is the 'Greetings from Lewiston' card, doesn't it make Lewiston look fun? it's not. My sister lives there and I guess it has a decent fabric warehouse and Stephen King lives there, but that's about it. I'll probably get angry "Lewiston is awesome" emails now. Bring it on.

I'm off to work this afternoon. Are you having a good day?

I lovelovelove these vintage postcards. There was a display at the Boston Public Library a while back with all of the Boston vintage postcards. I wanted to steal them! (Don't worry, I didn't...)

I used to really hate Lewiston, but I now think it has it's charm. I'm a photographer though, and I don't care to take photos of your stereotypical Maine landscape (ie boats and lighthouses). It's run down and gross but it looks interesting in pictures!
Stephen King lives in Bangor, where I grew up :) I used to have to walk past his massive house on the way to school, hah.

Katrinka, Thanks for the Stephen King correction (and I call myself a Mainer, jeesh!)! LA does have it's charms, photographically, and actually a decent skatepark, but definitely not a "destination"!
