Greetings from the Pine Tree State, ca. 1938 / Boston Public Library

Why is Maine called the "Pine Tree State?"

The images and text of this slide show will guide K-2 classrooms through our accompanying bicentennial lesson plan and give students a look at, and prompts about, historic images of iconic Maine plants, animals, and landforms.

This Tichnor Brothers gloss postcard from the 1930s promoted Maine tourism. The image is a combination of photograph and painting, and shows white pine tassels and cones.
