Album Info:In the Summer of 1984, I had the opportunity to make a whirlwind tour of the Northeast - somewhere I'd never been before. Among the stops included was a two-day window of opportunity to checkout Bangor and Aroostook's Searsport branch. Naturally, day one was dark and rainy. Things did improve, however, for day two. Here are a few photos from that far too short-lived experience.

BAR 84
