Photographs of people on the deck of the docked transport steamer named State of Maine during the Civil War at Alexandria, Virginia, May 7, 1864. A group of men at the stern of the ship appear to be in the process of raising a flag. One source says that it is a hospital ship. These four looped photographs were taken in quick succession with a 4-lens stereoscopic camera and reveal that a time of possibly a few seconds between when the images on the glass negative plate were exposed. A primitive film emerges when they are animated as seen here. Probably taken by a photographer employed by Mathew Brady. Thanks to T Blake for sending me a link to additional information.

A short video to show off some of our wedding cars and packages.
This film was made in 1971 and features great footage of old trucks and Maine scenes. Coles Express was a LTL truck freight carrier started in 1917 and continued through 1997. This video, made on the 53rd anniversary of Coles Express, talks about the company, it's people and nice video of trucks in operation, including the famous "Tank-Van". Taken from the Cole Land Transportation Museum archives, the original 15 minute film has been edited to 10 minutes by removing some scenic views and removing two customer interviews.

One of the first transports by LifeFlight of Maine's new fixed wing program. This video shows our interim plane taking off from Northern Aroostook Regional Airport in Frenchville, Maine. The plane is based at Bangor International Airport and can fly to most airports across the state to pick up critically ill or injured patients and transport them to one of Maine's major medical centers or much farther away to Boston, New York, Washington DC, Montreal or Toronto. LifeFlight's plane is currently being fitted with special avionics that improve performance and make it more compatible with shorter runways; and a medical interior to turn it into a flying hospital. It will go into service later this fall.

By request, I put together this video from several trips to Canada, primarily in 1990 and 1995 covering Maine, New Brunswick, and a bit of Quebec not included in the "Sherbrooke Thunder" "Lac Megantic" and "last day of the Sherbrooke Sub" videos. I only ever shot one CP train in Maine in daylight, and the Onawa trestle shot was taken while spending all day waiting and no train ever showed up. The New Brunswick footage was part of the 1990 trip that made up the bulk of the first two videos mentioned above.
