Not all the fisherman living in the houses at Bar Harbor were POOR. My father Harold Markuson grew up in one of those homes with neighbor and his best buddy Larry Erickson.

My Grandfather, Sigurd was the fisherman, and one of the most successful hand trollers of the area notably a "Highliner" We have pictures of Harold and Larry growing up there with my aunt Sylvia and their homes were very nice, my grandmother Hilda was an immaculate housekeeper and gardener.
