Vintage Maine Images: A Website Comes to Life: Vintage Maine Images is more than a website. It is a presentation of the human perspective, recorded through photographs, maps, postcards, and other historical materials. With more than 21,000 images online and available to purchase, the diversity of original materials provide a remarkable look at a range of subjects including business and industry, art, recreation, and social life from the Age of Exploration to the present. Vintage Maine Images is a gathering space for stories of past events, people, and towns, told through rich and often surprising imagery.(May 1-June 3, 2013.)
