People's Ferry, Woolwich, ca. 1910

Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum


Before the Carlton Bridge was completed in 1929, anyone wanting to travel between Woolwich and Bath, on the far shore, had to take the ferry across.

The Ferry was the only way for students who attended Morse High School in Bath to get there and for fire trucks from the City of Bath to get to Woolwich in an emergency.
