Talk and Tea Set At Woodlawn

ELLSWORTH — At 3 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 14, Woodlawn Museum Executive Director Joshua C. Torrance will present a lecture titled “Woodlawn Through the Eyes of Emily Bush: Noted Photographer and Lecturer of the 1930s.”


The lecture will be given during the afternoon tea held as part of the Ellsworth Antiques Show at Woodlawn.

In 1939, Richard Hale, chairman of the committee in charge of Woodlawn, hired Bush to prepare a lecture with color slides. Bush was a professional photographer and lecturer who spoke throughout Massachusetts and into Maine on subjects ranging from historic houses to fall foliage tours and even on the history of Mexico.

The focus of Torrance’s lecture will be on the color slides that the museum recently digitized.

The cost of the tea and lecture is $25 per person and includes admission to both the show and museum. Reservations are strongly recommended, as seating is limited.

For more information on the show or to make reservations for the afternoon tea and lecture, visit or call (207) 667-8671.
