|Scope & Content||
CD - "Peapods of the Maine Coast" is a compilation of interviews with 12 individuals who have a knowledge of these little double-ended boats.
The Peapod has played an essential role in the life and history of Maine. Named for its rounded, double-ended shape, Peapods are thought to have originated around 1870, or earlier, around Penobscot Bay. Peapods were the original Maine Lobster boat, as a fisherman could row either way, and walk up the side to haul a trap.
This series of interviews was conceived to commemorate these boats and to capture some of the history and knowledge held by the generation who have seen as these boats have passed from working craft to largely recreational uses.
