Car ferry to Campobello, Lubec, ca. 1955

Contributed by Lubec Historical Society


The car ferry to Campobello Island, New Brunswick, was located at the end of upper Water Street in Lubec Village. North Lubec extends in the background. Locally called a "scow," it was operated by the Canadian government at no charge. The man standing in the foreground is believed to be Clyde Brown, also a keeper at Head Harbour Lighthouse, according to the book, "200 years of Lubec History 1776 - 1976." page 44. The opening of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial Bridge on August 13 1962 ended the ferry’s usefulness.
