"Frenchman's Bay Rendezvous"

By: Inventory Currently AVAILABLE, William E. Hitchcock

Waterline diorama depicting the geographically important Maine Central Railroad Terminal at McNeil Pt, Maine c 1911. This northern most terminal provided ferry access to Bar Harbor and Mt. Desert before the connecting auto bridge was constructed in 1931. Ferries depicted are Moosehead and Sebenoa, and a three-masted coasting lumber and coal schooner Winchester unloading at the wharf.  A small two-masted coasting schooner with logs onboard passes by heading for a lime kiln operations in either Rockland or Rockport. The visible seven  passenger railway cars illustrate the tremendous influx of summer tourist captivated by the spectacular resorts on Mt Desert Island. On the wharf is a significant timber-built partially enclosed cargo warehouse, indicating the constant need for provisions and supplies to be ferried to these remote locations along Frenchman’s Bay.
