The caption reads, "A wonderful panorama -- Maiden's Cliff, Camden, Maine." This cliff overlooks Megunticook Lake.

The white cross on top of Maiden's Cliff is a memorial to Elenora French, an 11-year-old girl who fell off the cliff on May 7, 1864. The story goes that she climbed the cliff along with her older sister, friends, and teacher when a sudden gust of wind blew her hat off.

The Tichnor Brothers printing company published this type of postcard circa 1938 as part of their Maine series.
