Childs Tavern in Wilmington
1920 - 1940
This black and white photograph captures the Tavern in Wilmington. A rutted dirt road cuts across the foreground of the image at a slight angle. Concrete sidewalks parallel both sides of the road, and wooden utility poles and leafy deciduous trees line the road. A fire hydrant stands along the side of the road at the right side of the image. The Tavern, which is sited on the opposite side of the road and is angled slightly off to the left, is a sprawling, three-story, wood-frame, gambrel-roof building that is covered in wood shingles and boasts a columned, wrapping porch. Several men and women are posted along the porch and on the porch steps. Shrubs grow along the base of the porch and the foundation of the building. A walkway approaches the porch from the sidewalk, and a driveway extends along the right side of the building and passes through a porte-cochre. A few field stones frame the driveway. Another large wood-frame building is visible to the left of the Tavern, at the left edge of the image. The leafy foliage suggests the season is summer. This photograph was taken by a photographer for the Eastern Illustrating & Publishing Co. and contributed to the Landscape Change Program by the Penobscot Marine Museum, located in Searsport, ME. Eastern Illustrating was a postcard company located in Belfast, ME that took thousands of photographs throughout New England and upstate New York between 1909 and the 1950s.
