A Message from the Editor
"This souvenir edition of the Maine Trail commemorating the official opening of the Maine Turnpike is the result of the combined efforts of individuals.
Each page of this edition has been given the most careful study for its relative importance in our attempt to portray the significance of this extension to the State of Maine.
Yet with the most, considerate screening and constant revisions, we are humbly aware that pictorially and descriptively, we can only scratch the surface presenting highlights of this greatest road building job in the history of our State."
