Photo of a three climbers with ropes on Mount Katahdin. 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: "Who said there were no mountains in Maine? This picture of Mount Katahdin shows that even the hardiest mountain climbers will find hard going on some of this mountain's steeper slopes. Other trails up the mountain, however, are gradual and safe enough for even the tyro climber."

Exact date of the photo unknown.
