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