Aerial view, Lubec, ca. 1964

Contributed by Lubec Historical Society

Description

While detail is difficult to resolve because of halftone reproduction, the long new elementary school is visible near the edge at the lower left. Looking above the baseball diamond the front of the old high school, near shoreline, is visible. Following Main Street to the right, the fork at Washington Street forming Flatiron Corner is apparent.

The McCurdy automobile agency occupied the building near the corner. The two-story flat-roof Hilltop School can be spotted, the peaked-roof Columbian Hall immediately to its right. Nearby the two church spires of the Congregational Church and, to its right, the Christian Temple, are obvious. Following the shoreline note the water tower and the large American Can Company extending over the water. Farther on two stacks appear at the Seaboard Packing Company, and the many smokehouses along Water Street.
