The slide collection of photographer Velma Daigle, of St. John Valley, Maine, has been donated by her family to the Fort Kent, Maine, Historical Society, providing a rare but richly colorful look at their community dating from the 1930s to the '80s. The collection, detailing the daily life of the community, is estimated at tens of thousands of slides, said society president Chad Pelletier, who is scanning and cataloging the images and posting them on the group's Facebook page. "It really is a treasure-trove," Pelletier said. "It is just an unbelievable collection."
