Bangor is a city that has grown in many ways since Jacob Buswell and his family, the first white settlers, built their log cabin by the Penobscot River in 1769. Over the course of the nineteenth century, Bangor developed into a cosmopolitan center of Maine, but to this day it retains some of the proud characteristics of a town that was once the lumbering capital of the world. Collected in this fascinating visual history are over 200 photographs that together reflect the cityAa''s rich and diverse history. The photographs show more than a century of change, with stirring images of four-masted schooners in the harbor, of log drives, of floods, and of fires. People fill the book: Amelia Earhart and Presidents Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Nixon, and Kennedy pictured on visit; the Brady Gang, shot by the FBI in 1937 as the nationAa''s most wanted criminals; and especially the hardworking men and women who built Bangor into the Aa"Queen City of the East.Aa"
