Stonington & Deer Isle–Then & Now

29.95

By Danny Oliver

Danny loves this island. He has lived here all his life and has no desire to leave. He has been fascinated by island history from an early age, with a remarkable connection to his great-grandmother, who told tales of how things were when she grew up on the island. Both she and Danny’s father would always have something to say about the places they’d pass while driving around the island. 

With encouragement from teachers and a love of the island’s history, Danny’s book is a testament to the draw that history still holds for us in today’s technological world.

A large format book with historical and contemporary photos of the towns of Stonington and Deer Isle, Maine, with commentary by Danny Oliver. Of the contemporary photos he says, “I tried to take these photos from the same spot as the old ones, to get the full effect of how thing have changed or, in some cases, haven’t changed.”

About the author: Danny Oliver was born and raised in Stonington and grew up at 16 Granite Street, just down the hill from the Catholic church. As a kid, he was fascinated with the big trucks and boats he could see come and go from his home, and as a consequence became a truck driver and lobster fisherman.

About the photographs: The old photos came from family, friends and the Deer Isle-Stonington Historical Society. Danny says, “I took the new photos myself with help from my daughter, Candace Oliver, who owns Candy Leigh Photography. Much of that work was done in 2014 when the idea for this book first came to me. I tried to take these photos from the same spot as the old photos to get the full effect of how things have changed or, in some cases, haven’t changed.”
