Did You Know?

Did you know there are three versions of the The Maine Lobsterman sculpture created by Victor Kahill for the Maine exhibit in the 1939 World Fair?

Southern Mainers are probably most familiar with the installment in Portland, but there's also a replica on Bailey Island (which was the home of the sculpture's model, the late lobsterman H. Elroy Johnson) and on Maine Avenue in Washington, D.C. For more of the sculpture's backstory, see here.
