Photo from Gridley Barrows collection

LEWISTON — The Lewiston Public Library is partnering with the Sun Journal to solve the "Mystery of the Unknown Buildings" in its Gridley Barrows Collection.

If you think you recognize this photo, please let library staff know at or send a note to adult services, Lewiston Public Library, 200 Lisbon St., Lewiston, ME 04240.

When Lewiston architect and local historian Gridley Barrows died in 1999, the library received his collection of nearly 6,000 photographs depicting local buildings and architectural features.

Most have been identified over the years, but many remain a mystery. With the goal of preserving and eventually making the photographic collection available to the public online, we need your help to identify as many images as possible.

This feature will appear weekly in the Sun Journal. If you are the first to correctly identify a photo, you will be recognized in the print and online editions of the Sun Journal.

The Band is Identified!

Amey Feeley of "The Feeley Sisters" contacted us to confirm that this is her musical group performing at a Bates College outdoor concert. Amey and her sisters sing World War II era songs.

Pete G. guessed that this is "Martha, Amy, Liz Feely with their mother Rachel Feely". Not sure if anyone can corroborate this, but we don't have a way of verifying that otherwise. Comment here or send us an email if you think this idea is correct, or you have other ideas...
