Eastern Illustrating Company

COBBETT’S POND COLLECTION

Over the summer months, I will be presenting a series of photographs taken by the Eastern Illustrating Company, on Cobbett’s  Pond in the 1920’s and 30’s. You will see the interior of “Club Mirimar,” the notorious speakeasy at Bella Vista and many views taken along the shoreline of the pond.  The first few photographs presented were taken on the hill at the “Head of the Pond,” where Granite Hill is located today.  If you see a view you like, the Penobscot Marine Museum will make fine art print copies for you.
