Notes

  • -  Index data: These images document a variety of buildings and scenes; 1-2, Wooden "running potato" in a yard; this is a fairly common type of yard ornament; 3, Sign at Aroostook Creations, a craft shop on State Highway 11; 4, Rectangular clothesline, a common type in the area; 5, House with a lateral addition; this type of addition is one of the most common types in the study area; 6, Forest and grassland; some of this was probably once farmland; 7, An abandoned house along a stream west of State Highway 11. The materials used indicate that this was built in the 20th century, but birch bark was still used as insulation; 8, A wheeled dock (quay); the wheels enable the dock to be pulled from the water before the winter freeze, thus averting ice damage; 9, Looking east toward Brown's Point from the west side of Eagle Lake; the gray and red house of Katherine Brown is visible, as is the red house belonging to Phil Brown which served as home to fieldworkers Ray Brassieur and David Whitman during the survey; 10, Quay; see #8; 11, An island in Eagle Lake; 12, Quay; see #8; 13, See #9; 14, House of Fort Kent artist George Roy; 15, Shrine at a house in Fort Kent; many houses in the study area have such shrines; 6, 16 Windmill made by George Roy, who claims it can generate electricity if properly hooked up; 17, Artist George Roy with a chainsaw carving which he made; 18, Potato fields and a small herd of cattle on a farm along U.S. Route 1 in Frenchville; 19-20, Downtown Madawaska at night
