A new picture will be displayed here periodically.



We are not quite certain what is going on in the above two photos.  However, it appears the two gentlemen (unidentified) are eyeing some type of model airplane.  "The Comet" seems to be a child's toy ride.  The photo was taken in the yard to the south of Dr. Murphy's office (forground) where the Speedway is today.  That building is still standing with cement block walls and has been moved back from the road.  The building with the printing on the side in the top photo is Art Wakeman's shop where 5th3rd Bank stand today.  The house in the background across the street is where Dr. Herrman's dental office now stands.  To the right of that house is the block building where the Palmer Garage and Bert Lee's car dealership were located.  That building was constructed by William Broadwell in 1916.  These photos probably date to a time circa 1920. 


Photos have been place here on a monthly basis since November of 2002.  It is becoming more difficult to come up with new and interesting subject matter that hasn't already been displayed in this site or in "The Book."  Therefore, as new information and photos come in, this site will be updated.  New photos may be placed here more than once a month or it may be a couple of months before the site is updated.  Hopefully, this will be much easier on the keeper of this site and more interesting for the people who visit it.  Check "Updates" on the Home Page to see what has been added and when.  Thanks for your support and please help us preserve Bangor's history.
