Maine Historical Society celebrated the opening of a new photography show during Portland’s First Friday Art Walk.

Weaving together a visual narrative of life in Maine that is both timeless and surprising, EXPOSED revealed unusual perspectives and rare content. Featured images included early electrical tattooing in 1925, an 1890 bicycle race, and crowds of hundreds gathered in Monument Square waiting for the results of a 1923 boxing match.
