Help solve the Mysteries of the Unknown Places!
The Lewiston Sun Journal and LPL have partnered to solve the Mysteries of the Unknown Places with a weekly feature in the paper’s Monday “Encore” section.
Do you recognize this picture? If so, email us at LPLReference@lewistonmaine.gov or write us at: Reference Dept., Lewiston Public Library, 200 Lisbon St., Lewiston, ME 04240.
Each week a new picture from the library’s Gridley Barrows Photographic Collection is published under the headline” “Recognize this photo?” The first person to correctly identify the photo will be mentioned in the Sun Journal along with the identifying information.
When Barrows, a renowned local historian and architect, died in 1999, he left his large collection of photographs of places around Lewiston/Auburn to the Lewiston Public Library. Among the almost 6,000 images are some that have never been identified.
The Gridley Barrows Photographic Collection will eventually be available for full access on LPL’s Web site. Click here to see a gallery of the images that have been identified so far!
