In this Video!


The Rotary Club float from 1945 is featured in this Fort Fairfield Journal Television “Time Machine” documentary video on the Maine Potato Blossom Festival.  This ten minute video features restored 8mm movie camera footage of the 1945 Maine Potato Blossom Festival parade and more through the years.  In the background of the picture above, the vantage point of the photographer is from the parking lot on the Eastern side of Acadia Medical Supply looking across the street at the building now housing A Hair Above.  The “Orange Crush” sign is part of a vendor display sitting where the H.O. Perry Insurance building (not yet built here) now sits today.  



Also featured in the video is the town clock building fire that destroyed the block that formerly existed in today’s H.O. Perry block.



The picture above dates to around 1960. It is a picture of a Festival parade featured in this video.  The photographer for this picture is standing in the area in front of what is now Katahdin Trust Company, looking East, toward Canada.
