Throwback Thursday, Maine Style: Visiting LL Bean & Hunting in 1936
There's nothing like a trip to LL Bean! It's been in our blood for over 100 years, and here's the video proof. In this video from the Archie Stewart Collection, you can see just how much (and how little) has changed here in Maine over the years.
From Northeast Historic Film's YouTube description:
Thomas Archibald (Archie) Stewart (1902-1998), a member of the Amateur Cinema League, lived in Newburgh, New York. He developed a keen interest in aviation and automobiles early in life. The Stewart International Airport (Stewart Airbase) is located on land once farmed by his family, who later donated this property to the town of Newburgh. The Stewart family operated the Broadway Garage, Buick and Pontiac Sales and Service business in Newburgh, and Newburgh Motors, which sold Packard automobiles.
