Fire watchman camp, Tumbledown, 1915

Contributed by Maine Forest Service


Camp Tumbledown, the Forest Service fire watchman camp, taken in 1915. The watchman wrote on the back of the photo. Some of the writing is missing. He calls it a "fine little camp" and notes it has good beds, a cook stove, good dishes and a spring nearby. He also cites its distance from Skinner, Eustis (2 miles), Blakeslee (5 miles), Spence Depot Camp ( 1 1/2 miles) and 1 mile from the Tumbledown tower.
