Memorial Day weekend begins the summer cottage season. The Edward L. Goding Cottage was designed by architect Antoine Dorticos and built on a Maine island in 1892.
This beautiful photo was taken by architectural photographer Dave Clough in 2013 for a book project. Maine State Historian, Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr. asked me to co-author the book with himself and architect Christopher Glass. The result of that collaboration was “Homes Down East, Classic Maine Coastal Cottages and Town Houses,” published by Tilbury House Publishing in 2014. This is one of my favorite houses from the book.
Goding was a local shoe manufacturer and Dorticos a talented architect who also taught foreign languages in the public high school. Following publication of “Homes Down East,” the publisher asked if I had any ideas for another book. I did, and the seed for “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners” was planted. Having Dave Clough join that project as photographer for the 13 featured houses in the book added enormously to the quality of the finished product.
