There are lots of farmers markets in Waldo County that have developed over the years. But long before that, back 30-40 years ago, Bayside had Eli. Eli Cobb lived in Northport and had a garden on Prescott Hill Road. During the summer months Eli would ride around the village selling his fresh vegetables "just picked these peas this morning; corn will be ready in a couple of weeks," etc. He was a great Maine character. These photos were taken in the late 70s—notice the real fancy sign on the window of his Volkswagen." 2011-08-22 Race Officiating Crew (circa 1980), photographed by Terry Samway and picturing Peg Lovejoy, Bobbie Webster, Connie Holmes, Adelaide Lincoln, Anne Marie Samway and Lee Samway.2011-08-22 Race Officiating Crew (circa 1980), photographed by Terry Samway and picturing Peg Lovejoy, Bobbie Webster, Connie Holmes, Adelaide Lincoln, Anne Marie Samway and Lee Samway. 2012-01-13 Union Cottage Hall, showing the upstairs hall of the Union Cottage on Auditorium Park, photographed by Art Hall. 2012-01-13 Union Cottage Hall, showing the upstairs hall of the Union Cottage on Auditorium Park, photographed by Art Hall.

He is pictured here in the NYC clubhouse with [my mother] Adelaide Lincoln. Adelaide recalls the governor arriving at the dock on his boat and, upon leaving, walking around to say good-bye, remembering each person's name.

Here, Mr. Downs is telling me something funny. My brother, Jr., has that hot purple bathing suit, and Jim Kelly is needing some Twinkies. My family bought our cottage from Mr. Downs in 1967 or '68, by chance, on our way back to NJ from the World's Fair Expo in Canada. We stopped at the Colonial Gables Motor Inn in Belfast. Clyde Allen, a Navy man, saw the boats bobbing across the bay. He and Helen went to find these boats right into Bayside and bought the Downs' cottage on the spot--$3,700 fully furnished. They went back to Colonial Gables and said 'Come on kids; we're going to our new summer house.' The beginning." 2014-02-24 Flashback: Dan Webster and Sue Brown on the wharf, submitted by Sue.

FOR SUMMER VISITORS
If You Have Accommodations To Offer Make Them Known Now.
With the desire to help those who want to come to this city and vicinity to spend the summer, as well as those who have accommodation to offer, The Journal proposed in a recent issue to publish, free, announcements of houses or cottages to let, or of those who would furnish rooms or board, or both, to summer visitors.  It is expected, of course, that such announcements will be concise and will give addresses to which applicants may write, as The Journal cannot undertake to handle the correspondence; and that we should be notified when arrangements are made, that the advertising may be withdrawn.  This does not apply to real estate advertising in general, but only to the accommodating of summer visitors.  There is special demand for rooms and board with modern conveniences and we should be glad to hear from those who have such accommodations to offer.  Now is the time such announcements should be made.  We start the directory this week, as follows:
FURNISHED COTTAGE: To let for the season, a 7-room furnished cottage delightfully situated on the North Shore, Northport.  Water in the cottage and water closet.  Apply to A. A. Howes, Belfast.  
[Editor's note:  This cottage was known as Hazel Bank and is now owned by Wendy Huntoon, Rasha Huntoon El-Jaroudi and Nadim El-Jaroudi.]

2015-04-23 Happy 60th Anniversary Jo and Zelma Huntoon, submitted by their daughter Wendy Huntoon. 2015-04-23 Happy 60th Anniversary Jo and Zelma Huntoon, submitted by their daughter Wendy Huntoon. "Zelma and Jo were married on April 23, 1955 in the Columbia University Chapel. The wedding party was an all-Bayside group, including (left to right) Richard Jennings, Jo Huntoon, Zelma Huntoon, Gwen Lopez, Ken Lopez and Susan Woodrow. Jo and Zelma are one of the many Bayside marriages from their generation. According to Jo's oral history 'The summer of 1946, Zelma spent the summer carving her name, address and, I believe, phone number on the wharf, and I moved from Chicago to New Jersey and, looking for someone I knew in the area, copied Zelma's phone number off the wharf and called her up that fall.' Zelma's recollection is similar: 'The thing was, it surprised people up here, because people didn't know that I was seeing Jo also during the winter. His family lived in New Jersey (his stepmother and father). When he'd come down from Bowdoin at Christmas time, he'd call me up and we'd go out together. So we saw each other consistently over those years. Finally, when we decided to get married, he said, 'I just waited, I knew you'd marry me eventually.'" Oral histories for Zelma and Jo, as well as from many other members of the Bayside community, can be found at the new Bayside Historical Society webpage, www.baysidehps.org (go to the Catalog page and look for "Oral history"). Happy anniversary, Zelma and Jo!! 1915-05-13 Mr. Thomas E. Shea's play, 1915-05-13 Mr. Thomas E. Shea's play, "The Man' o' Warsman," made famous by him, will be shown in pictures at the Colonial Theatre Thursday, May 20th, one night and matinee at 2:30. Mr. Shea rewrote the play to fit the Mexican situation for motion pictures, played the leading part himself and directed the production, which was put on by the Broadway Moving Picture Company in New York.

For the many of you who know Lisa, you also know how lucky I was to find her, early in life, and then somehow convince her to marry me, an event that happened 30 years ago today at a little church in the western suburbs of Philadelphia.

E. E. Babcock of Belfast has just completed a stable-garage, 66 by 36 feet, for Ira M. Cobe on the land adjoining his former garage and servants' quarters near Bohemia on the south shore. The building is probably the finest of the kind in this vicinity and has every modern convenience. He will keep his saddle horses and cars there during his stay at Hillside Farms. The building has cement floors, and is finished throughout in hard pine and everything is up-to-date in all details. A cement vegetable cellar is one of the conveniences. The building is to be heated and coal is kept in the attic, with a chute of brick leading to the furnaces.

1915-07-29 A North Shore Reception
From the Republican Journal, July 29, 1915
Mr. and Mrs. Pierre Tartoue entertained informally Monday afternoon at the Helorge, North Shore, Northport, the summer home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. George Dodworth of New York. The younger guests played tennis on a fine court near the shore and were in the excitement of the finals when the shower called a halt. The other guests were entertained on the porch, and particularly enjoyed looking over the portrait album of M. Tartoue, the gifted young French artist. It was a coincidence that this latest work, the life-sized portraits of Eleanor and Adelaide, little daughters of Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Close of New York, was exhibited that afternoon for the first time at their summer home in Greenwich, Conn., at a garden fete in honor of the children's birthdays. The little girls in pick chiffon with dainty rose bud trimmings are seated on the ground at their summer home. One is hugging her pet bunny and the other holds a bunch of wild flowers, while their pet poodle is in the foreground. Nearly all the reproductions in the album are in sepia, including another of the Close children, and a few are in colors. While the portrait of Cardinal Farley is regarded as the young artist's masterpiece, and is valued at $30,000, some of the less elaborate are most fascinating particularly those of the two daughters of Ex-U.S. Senator Wm A. Clark of Montana. M. Tartoue is particularly successful in his likenesses, and no greater compliment could be paid an artist than the words of a son as he looked for the first time on the portrait of his mother, a lady of 76 years: 1915-07-29 A North Shore Reception

It is hoped that opportunity may be given Belfast art lovers to inspect these portraits. Refreshments were served from tables on the porch decorated with lace ferns and bouquets of golden rod. Mrs. Dodworth and her daughter were assisted by the gentlemen in serving harlequin creams, assorted cake, confectionery and fruit punch. The guests for tennis were the Misses Esther Vance, Evelyn Flanders, Heloise Kennedy, Dorothy Frank, Clara Keating, Dorothy Sargent, Marion Heald, Martha and Bertha Terry, Messrs. Donald Davis, Norman White, Edwin Burd, Sibley Littig, Percival Hale, Julian Vance, George Terry, Walter Harriman and George Wadlin. The porch guests were Mrs. Mary Bragg, Mrs. Ada Blaisdell Yates, Misses Mabel Swett and Frances Flanders from Bayside, neighbors from the North shore cottages and several from Belfast. Because of the absence of some of the young people the tennis game mentioned above was not finished and the prizes were awarded as the score stood Monday. Miss Kennedy received a cretonne covered box of chocolates and Mr. Burd a combination pencil and light.

1915-08-05 Ruggles Park with Post Office
The Republican Journal, August 5, 1915.
A few years ago summer residents of Northport had much trouble with their mails. Letters directed to Northport went to Saturday Cove, the real Northport post office, where they were frequently delayed as the postmaster had no way of knowing if the summer people were stopping on the campground at Temple Heights, Northport, or at Saturday Cove. After considerable discussion it was decided to change the name of the Campground to Bayside. Later it was found that unless letters were addressed Bayside, Waldo County, they went to Bayside, Hancock County. This was worse than going to Saturday Cove, for it took longer to get the letters back. Now it is proposed to make another change and Northport Harbor is suggested.
The Post Office, by whatever name, is seen in the middle beyond the bandstand.

Beverly also provides the following bit of history: "Bayside began in 1849 as the Northport Wesleyan Grove Camp Meeting Association. This was after its first meeting in 1848 on Islesboro. NWGCMA was chartered by the state legislature in 1873 and, by 1876, there were 278 canvas tents and 70 permanent cottages. Churches from the Penobscot River towns came for two weeks in August/September for a religious retreat. Initially they stayed in cottages--a curtain down the middle to separate men and women. Later, 'Society Cottages' were built, and men were (sometimes) on one floor and women on another. The attached image shows the location and back side of the Auditorium where the meetings were held. Previous to the Auditorium's construction in 1893, the meetings were held out of doors, with a covered speakers' stand." 2016-12-29 Rogers Lane, as shown on the historical sign at the top of lower Bayview Park, placed compliments of the Bayside Historical Preservation Society. Fairy and Charles Rogers were my great-grandparents, making Barbara and Dan Webster my grandparents. My father was Dan III, I am Dan the IV, and my eldest son is Dan V. If you've never stopped to read these signs placed around the village, you're missing some interesting history.2016-12-29 Rogers Lane, as shown on the historical sign at the top of lower Bayview Park, placed compliments of the Bayside Historical Preservation Society.
