The Ferris wheel caught my eye when we walked into the library in Old Orchard Beach. These photos were taken during Labor Day week, and the tourist season was winding down. I haven't been to the town since the 60s, and it was a nice surprise to see how clean and exciting the town was. While I visited the library, my husband walked along the seven-mile beach. I loved the design of the library and the fact that there was an jam-packed archives room.

Archive Room, with photos below. The reference librarian unlocked the door for me and allowed me to take photos. Unfortunately, I don't have any relatives or ancestors from this area.
