Frank "Big Thunder" Loring, Bar Harbor, ca. 1890

Contributed by Abbe Museum

Frank Loring is pictured here, with unidentified boy, sitting by boat shed just west of the Bar Harbor steamboat wharf, around 1890. Loring would rent out canoes to rusticators, or take them out on guided canoe trips around Frenchman's Bay.

While Loring was a many of many talents, entertainer, medicine man and hunter to name a few, he also spent many summers renting canoes to rusticators, often with himself or his son Mitchell as paddler and guide.
