Description


Bowdoin is the quintessential New England college, and Brunswick is the quintessential New England town. Bowdoin has its stately buildings and trees, while Brunswick is blessed with a charming downtown featuring a pedestrian-friendly Main Street of dramatic proportions. Chartered in the late 1700s, Bowdoin has been inextricably linked to the town of Brunswick for more than 200 years. Brunswick and Bowdoin College features vintage postcard views dating from the early 1900s through the late 1940s, providing an extraordinary visual reference for a time of enormous technological and social change, when Main Street was transformed from a rutted dirt road to a paved thoroughfare, stables were supplanted by garages, buildings were constructed and razed, and merchants came and went.
