Gridley Barrows Mysterious Places Project
About The Project
The Sun Journal and the Library have partnered to solve the Mysteries of the Unknown Places with a weekly feature in the paper’s “Encore” section. 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. A special grant was received from Harriman Associates to assist with the processing of the Gridley Barrows Collection. Read the Sun Journal article from Nov 28, 1999.
How it Works
Each week a new picture from the Gridley Barrows Photo 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. As more images are identified, the collection will eventually be available for full access on LPL’s Web site.
