RANGELEY – Chuck Coté, who grew up on Eustis Ridge, will bring his historic photographs of logging and hunting to the Rangeley Lakes Region Logging Museum from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 6.

Coté’s grandfather took many photographs in the Kennebago area in the 1920s, but he never labeled them. Some of the photos also document the Albion Savage operations at the Green farm. Cote would like to find out who the people in the photos are and where, in the Rangeley-Kennebago area, the photos were taken.

Cote has been caring for the historic photos for decades now. “I just knew I had to hold on to them,” he said, during a recent visit to the Rangeley Logging Museum. “One of them, I think, shows the last caribou shot in the Chain of Ponds.”

Now, though, Cote is planning to move to Alaska, and he would like to learn as much as he can about the photos before he goes. Coté and the museum invite the public to help him solve the riddle of the photographs.
