R. Herman Cassens, Belfast, ca. 1920

Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum

R. Herman Cassens started the Eastern Illustrating and Publishing Co., a "real photo" postcard company, in Belfast in 1909.

He and his small crew traveled through rural New England and New York photographing locally known landmarks, street scenes, country stores and businesses, events and people.

Cassens sold his business in 1947 and died in 1948. The company made more than 30,000 glass negatives of New England and New York between 1909 and 1947.
