Friends often came down from the Poland Spring Hotel to accompany members of the community on automobile rides.
At left is the community's first car, a Silent Seldon purchased in 1909 from Fred A. Nickerson of Portland for $2,100. Nickerson was president of F.A. Nickerson, the Pierce-Arrow representative in Portland.
Elder Delmer Wilson is at the wheel. The passenger in the front seat of the second car is Elder William Dumont.
