Little Chebeague Island, view from south, 1947

Contributed by National Archives at Boston


Little Chebeague Island in Casco Bay is seen from the south in this 1947 photograph.

Barely visible, from left are the Cleaves/Bailey, Adams/Haskell and Fogg cottages show at the edge of the woods, then the dark Water Tank building. The Prichett cottage appears behind scattered trees.

The white area at the right is the sand spit at the southeast point nearest Long Island with Ricker Head on Great Chebeague appearing above it in the distance.

The photograph is part of a property appraisal prepared for the War Assets Administration in preparation for selling the island the Navy had purchased for use during World War II.
