All are invited to join us for a screening of the documentary "A Walk
Through History: A Tour of the Mills of Biddeford, Maine" on Saturday, June
10, at Hannaford Hall on the Portland campus of the University of Southern
Maine. This film takes you on a tour of the Biddeford Mill complex and
delves into the history of the industrial revolution in Biddeford.

A reception with light refreshments will begin at 3:30 PM, with the film to
start at 4:00 PM. This film is approximately 30 minutes long and will be
followed by a panel discussion with the three tour guides David Adams, Ray
Henault, and David Bishop.

This event is free and open to the public.

Register by visiting our Eventbrite page:

This film is presented by the Osher Map Library and Smith Center for
Cartographic Education in partnership with the Biddeford Mills Museum in
conjunction with our exhibition "Industry, Wealth, and Labor: Mapping New
England's Textile Mills." The OML Gallery will be open from 1:00 PM - 3:30
PM before the film for visitors who haven't seen the exhibit or would like
to revisit the materials related to the Biddeford Mills.
