2019 Hamlin Library Founder's Day Poster

This poster started in the winter. How do you take a photo in the winter in Maine for an event that to take place in July? This is how we did it.

It wasn't warm either.

Back in Lightroom and Photoshop, we narrowed it down to two images for a composite in the poster.

The Duesenberg ("bird") hood ornament.

Then it went into Photoshop:

This project includes two sizes for the poster and a postcard. The postcard front looks like the poster without the inset image. The back looks like this:

So now when you visit for Founder's Day this weekend (July 20) you can compare the summer scenery with the snow-covered location from the December 31, 2018 photographs. And weather predictions at this point say it will be quite the opposite of a wintry day.

We are making another calendar of photos of cars from the collection to be sold as well. You should be able to get them at Founder's Day or contact the library. Email me for details. Maybe I'll see you on Paris Hill this Saturday!

Founder's Day is a yearly event in Paris Hill, Maine commemorating the founding of this historic community. For example, the property where the car collection is housed used to belong to Hannibal Hamlin, Abraham Lincoln's first vice-president. There are events held on the village square and the opening of the car collection charges an entrance fee which supports the old library and museum.

Yes, that Duesenberg is the kind of car that famous (and very wealthy) people of the 1930's would drive.

That's the kind of car I'd like to drive. :)

Thanks for the photos. Just curious: What is Founder's Day exactly?
