Description:
This black and white photograph captures Bluebird Wigwam on Lake Raponda in Wilmington. The lake spreads out across the foreground of the image. Small ripples cover the surface of the water, suggesting a slight breeze. A modest, wood-frame, gambrel-roof cabin is located on a small island on the far side of the lake. The island is vegetated with tall conifers, leafy deciduous trees, and large shrubs. Several logs are piled in front of the cabin. A small wooden bridge connects the island to the main land at the right edge of the image. The lakeshore is also heavily wooded with similar vegetation. The thick foliage suggests a summer season. 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.
