LEWISTON – “To Make a Living,” a photographic exhibit tracing the legacy of local Franco-American occupations, is on display at the Lewiston Branch of UnitedKingfield Bank through June 30.

Part of the Franco-American Heritage Collection at the University of Southern Maine’s Lewiston-Auburn College, the 18 black and white images capture the working traditions in the Lewiston-Auburn community as mill-based work gave way to small entrepreneurial businesses.

Robyn Holman, director of exhibitions at the University of Southern Maine’s Lewiston-Auburn College, worked with UnitedKingfield’s Lewiston team to arrange the exhibit.

“We are pleased to share this historical perspective with the community,” said UnitedKingfield Bank’s Banking Manager Ray Teixeira. “As a community bank dedicated to small business development, we wanted to honor local occupations at a time when the twin cities are experiencing remarkable revitalization and growth.”

The exhibit is open to the public. Located at 110 Canal St., the bank is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Visit www.unitedkingfield.com for more information.
