Mary King Scrimgeour elegantly dressed for the weather, Lewiston, ca.1900

Contributed by Maine Historical Society

Description

Originally from Ontario, Canada, Mary King Scrimgeour (1849-1930) moved with her husband to Lewiston, Maine in 1885 when he took a position as a master mechanic for Bates Mills. The Scrimgeour’s were inventors. Mary obtained a U.S. patent for a radiator attachment used to warm items and dry clothes.

A woman of taste and style, Scrimgeour took advantage of opportunities afforded by Lewiston’s robust turn-of-the-century cultural milieu, to dress in the height of fashion.
