This is a collection of professional photos made from high-resolution scans of 8x10-inch glass negatives. They are very sharp. Notice the enlarged portions (See "What are the detail views" below) The photos show an early resort on the Kennebunk River and early beach homes on the ocean beach. You will get all five in the 5-inch by 7-inch size (5x7), ready to frame. Or, you can substitute larger sizes as explained below. See "Size options." Or you can request to substitute a CD with presentation-resolution images (see "CD option" below). Please see our other photos of Maine and other states as well. Scroll down to see our discount on additional purchases and free-item offers. Check out all our items!

1.  Boat house and boaters, with hotel in background, about 1895
2.  The club house and boaters, about 1895
3.  View of the resort from upriver, about 1895
4.  Picnic Rocks with people in canoes, about 1895
5.  The ocean beach with beach houses in background, about 1900

These prints will be custom-made for you new, from a photo lab. They will not be laser prints, not printed posters, not inkjet (except 16x20 and larger sizes). We have taken great care to preserve the sharpness and antique look while removing scratches, spots, and other damage that would make them less viewable. Other sizes will show more sky and trees at the top than the 5x7s shown. We have added detail views here that will not appear on your photo (see "What are the detail views" below).

Why buy these photos:  These photos would be good conversation starters in a restaurant, waiting room, lobby, office, classroom, library, lodge, cabin, or museum. Decorators place our photos in old frames where they look antique (see "Tone options" below). They could also be a gift for a history buff with roots in Kennebunkport. They can be resold in a store (see "Wholesale lots" below). Or place them in an album or scrapbook. Our photos can be used in school reports, presentations, and displays. These are significantly improved versions of the original images and must be licensed for use in a publication, video, or other product (see "Licenses" below). 

What are the detail views? These are enlargements of small portions of the photos. They are intended to show you some of the details in the photos and to give you an idea of the image quality. They are not additional prints and they will not appear separately on your photos. The larger the photos you order, the more detail you will see.

Custom processing:  We professionally make your photos as soon as we receive your payment, usually within 48 hours. This means that you can choose an alternative size, finish, or medium (see below). We ship quickly, usually within 2 or 3 days. So, you must specify any alternatives when you pay.

Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. 

Size options:  The bid and/or Buy It Now prices shown are for five 5-inch by 7-inch photos (5x7) that are ready to be framed in standard 5x7 frames (frames not included) or placed in an album, scrapbook, or report.  However you can request substitutions as explained below.

Tone options:  Your prints will have a sepia tone as shown unless you request grayscale. Sepia is the color of antique photos today, caused by acid in the old paper. Many people prefer the warm sepia tones over cold black and white. Your sepia photos will be on acid-free paper, but it will look antique. Grayscale or "black and white" is the way modern prints are often made from silver negatives. Side-by-side examples are shown for comparison on our "About our photos" page in our eBay store.

Sepia (antique look):  Default tone

Grayscale (black and white):  Request when you pay

Finish options:  Your prints will have a luster finish unless you request glossy when you pay. Glossy reflects glare from windows and bright lights but appears to be a bit sharper. Glossy also shows fingerprints more than luster.

Luster finish (dull, less glare):  Default finish

Glossy finish (shiny, more glare, looks sharper):  Request when you pay

Borders:  Your prints will have minimum borders. This means that there may be some white edges (less than 1/4 inch wide) outside the images so that you can display the maximum amount of the images in mats or typical frames that hide the edges of the photos.

Quality:  We select the highest-quality original images we can find of a given subject and carefully restore and improve them. Then we improve them as much as we can. Then we process them using modern archival methods so they can be affordable and last for many years.

CD option:  You can request a CD instead of prints. The CD will contain one or more versions of each image that are optimized for display in digital slide shows, presentations, and websites. The images will not exceed 1200 pixels in the longest dimension, and thus may not fill the screen when used with high definition displays. If we have additional information about the images, we will include text files as well. You must request the CD in eBay on the same day that you pay. The CD and images shall not be printed nor reproduced for sale nor distribution.

Packaging:  We ship 5x7 and 8x10 photos and CDs flat with a stiff board to prevent folding, in a sturdy envelope. Larger sizes are carefully rolled and shipped in a sturdy mailing tube.

Shipping time:  Your photos or CD can not be made until we receive your payment and your request for substitutions if any. However, we ship within 5 days after that. The time required by the postal services to deliver your photo depends on shipping method, Customs requirements, weather, holidays, and other factors beyond our control.
