A fascinating look at Hope, a rural mid-coast Maine town, as it transitions
from the horse and buggy to the automobile, electric and telephone era.
Full of history, vital records, biography, economics, and gossip from the transcribed “social news”
of the Rockland Courier-Gazette newspaper. The book includes an every name index, Hope's 1888 census,
and interesting biographies. There is a cornucopia of interesting turn of the century news, as it relates to many
families in Knox and parts of Waldo County, Maine, including some of their far-ranging migrations.
