Going for an Evening Ride, Sabbathday Lake, 1913

Contributed by United Society of Shakers

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.
