Bath in Sagadahoc County, Maine — The American Northeast (New England)
Deckhouse from steamer Winapie ca.1909
The deckhouse was used for decades on the grounds of a house in Bath. Its original flat roof was covered with this peaked roof, but it kept its name of the "wireless shack," and was eventually reunited with its history.
