The East Boothbay Tide Mill and bridge in the early 1930s with a few boys sitting at its edge. The blinking light in the middle of the road at the entrance to the bridge is visible.

The East Boothbay Tide Mill was built in 1824 by Caleb Hodgdon and remained in the Hodgdon family until it sold to William Rice in 1946.

Timber for the schooners Bowdoin and Shearwater as well as many others came from this mill.

This tide mill was torn down in 1959 for highway and bridge improvements.
