Sardine houses, North Lubec, ca. 1950

Contributed by Lubec Historical Society


This photograph shows sardine workers’ houses or factory camps on the North Lubec Road, owned by the North Lubec Manufacturing & Canning Co. (Lawrence Brothers). The view is north up the road, in the area of the Roger’s Island parking lot, with the home of Carrie Comstock Bangs (1898 - 1975) visible in the background.

Lubec native Margaret Bailey writes that “Carrie retired and came home to Lubec in the early 60’s. She was a dedicated volunteer at the library, and spent much time cataloging the collection. When I was in high school, she used to bring collections of all sorts of things to exhibit in glassed cases in the halls at school.”
