Photo of people exiting Lakewood Theater in Madison, Maine. Image was included in a 1939 publication from the Maine Development Commission titled, "Maine Recreational Copy and Pictures." The publication was evidently mailed out to newspaper and magazine editors to promote travel stories related to Maine.

Caption on the back of the photo reads: "Summer theaters like this at Lakewood, Maine bring a touch of Broadway to the Pine Tree State and allow visitors to get a close-up of the world's famous actors and actresses who vacation here and prepare for the next season's successes."

Exact date of the photo unknown. 75 Theater Rd, Madison, Maine.
