Same spot today with both buildings on the right still there. The Gulf gas station is now an antique store.



Gas station moved across the street.

How fitting. Looks like it may be an antique store on the right. I wonder if they have any Model T parts for sale.

That is Charlie Little's neck of the woods, I will have to ask him if he finds anything around there...

So did the store close at some point and reopen as an antique store or just keep the same old stock and rename accordingly?

The town of Bryant Pond had the last crank telephone system in the United States. They went modern in 1983.

If those two buildings are the same ones as before, either there is
some lens trickery going on, or someone changed the 12/12 pitch
roofs to a 6/12 (or close).

The overall pulling forward of the background is odd too. Or maybe
the locals moved the hill back to make way for the pond ???

Google street images are like looking through a fish-eye lens, yes the bottom picture is stretched a bit.

I got some fine old car books out of that very store on my honeymoon in June 1982. One side of the store was antiques, the other side was old books. A relative we visited nearby in West Paris still had a party line.

Erik, is West Paris where there's a restaurant that used to be a clothespin factory?
