Raymond Strout

When Raymond Strout was a school boy he saw an old photograph of Bar Harbor, and and his life-long avocation for collecting was begun. Photographs, old letters, signs, advertising art, memorabilia, they all tell a story. Raymond has spent over fifty years gathering, organizing, and researching these pieces of Bar Harbor and Maine's past. The proprietor of Ahlblad’s Frame Shop in Bar Harbor since 1972, Raymond frames and mats many of the letters and prints giving them a new life. Assisted by his sons Michael and Peter, they appraise each piece, and with an eye for color and form preserve them for the future.
