Overview

In this fascinating pictorial history, Gardiner's story is traced from Colonial times to World War II. The images deliver us to intriguing destinations: along the picturesque Kennebec watching the steamer Star of the East sail to its wharf, and Depot Square in 1884 at the peak of the railroad era. We visit an ice house on the river, where "fozen gold" was harvested; Water Street during the destructive 1896 flood; and Pulitzer Prize-winner Laura E. Richards' "Yellow House," during the visits of her mother, Julia Ward Howe, and her colleague, Hellen Keller.
