The island communities of Deer Isle and Stonington lie in Penobscot Bay, a region known and loved by sailors the world over. Deer Isle and Stonington portrays life on the island from the age of ferries and steamships, to the building of the Deer Isle-Sedgwick Bridge, through World War II. These vintage photographs allow the reader to watch as the island's main streets grow and change. Represented are landmarks such as the Mark and Pumpkin Island lighthouses, the Stonington Opera House, and the oldest buildings on the island. The vital industries of seafaring, sail making, commercial fishing, granite quarrying, and yachting are pictured here alongside images of everyday life-celebrations and ceremonies, shopping and picnics, education and worship, work and play.
