Will Brown with his Ford, Lincoln, ca. 1910

This record was added to Maine Memory Network through the efforts of a student at Mattanawcook Jr. High School. More info about student projects.


Will Brown pioneered the Model T Ford in Lincoln. A Bangor Daily News interview with Mr. Brown in 1954 reported that, "He bought his first car in 1904 and has perhaps been driving longer than anyone else in the state of Maine." He took a trip to Bangor, which was an all-day trip at the time. When a driver with a team of horses saw Brown and his car coming toward them, they took to the fields. Mr. Brown was a Ford dealer from 1910 to 1928. The text at the bottom of the photograph says "Ford Model T Price 850 WA Brown Co Agents," suggesting that it is an advertisement for Mr. Brown's dealership.
