Richard Sassaman, Paradise Lust fan, Maine historian, and tour guide extraordinaire, wrote me the other day with some soothing words:
“Just for the record, I went over to Eden the other day — the center of town (which, by the way, isn’t there any more) — and took a few shots for you. So you’ll know where the place really is.”
He’s talking about Eden, Maine, a former village in the now-town of Bar Harbor, which is where I grew up, more or less. So just so you can see where my obsession with Eden came from, I wanted to share Richard’s lovely photos.
