       This collection consist of over 80,000 photographs and negatives dating back to the late 1800s.  Ivan Flye donated a majority of his collection to us.  Ivan Flye owned the Pictorial Sudio  on Academy Hill in Newcastle and Carrroll Dinsmore, Jr. was the photographer from 1947 to 2008.  Flye bought the collections of various photograhers in the area including but not limited to William Healy of Damariscotta, John Bailey and Daivd Lindsay.  Since 2010 we have been scanning the collection in tif and jpeg and entering into a data base information about each negative or picture.  The collection includes but is not limited to all the towns and villages in Lincoln County and some towns outside this area in Mid Coast Maine. 

        Our emphasis has been to scan and enter into the data base all the Newcastle and some Damriscotta photographs and negatives first.  If you wish to purchase a picture of your family, home, particular place or event from Newcastle or Damariscotta please email us at or phone us at at 207-563-8233.
