Camping in the Northern Maine Woods in the 1880s

Here are yet more pics from the Library of Congress. These are photographs taken by Joseph J. Kirkbride—"a Philadelphian who trained as a physician, and an amateur photographer"—in the late 1880s while on "expeditions" in Maine. All fourteen seem to have been taken around the northern end of Moosehead Lake.
