31030. (photo) U.S. Coast Guard Station, Hunniwells (Popham) Beach, Maine c.1950’s. Clear close image provides a rare view of the front and side of the Popham Beach station. Note the multiple additions to this 1882-Type station built in 1883. The Hunnewell’s Beach life-saving station was established in 1883 halfway down Riverside Beach to keep watch over the mouth of Kennebec River. The station became the Popham Beach Coast Guard Station in 1935. The lifesavers patrolled the beach almost to Morse’s River day and night. Decommissioned in 1971, the station remains a distinct and well-loved- landmark at Popham Beach and today the station offers year round accommodations to visitors. Photo is overall quite clear and sharp with great detail of the structure. Measure 3 ½” x 5 ½” on postcard paper. Rare view. (F). $48.
