Stunning images of Bar Harbor, MDI in early 1900s

This slideshow of photos from the Library of Congress showcases images of Mount Desert Island in the early 1900s. Tourism has been prevalent on the island since the mid-19th century. What now would be a line of cars in the bustling main streets of Bar Harbor used to be horse-drawn carriages. Images show kids in sailor suits near Balance Rock and a slowly developing tourist destination that continues as a sought-after vacation spot to this day.
