A large crowd gathers on Squirrel Island for the annual Fete Week Field Day celebrations held in late August.

A two-masted schooner can be seen sailing into Boothbay Harbor.

On a flagpole from the building in the rear flies a 45-star flag (dating from the decade of 1898-1908).

At right is the Squirrel Island Chapel, built in 1879 and still in use.
