This undetermined event can be dated by the two flags, which appear to display 46 stars. The 46 star flag was authorized on July 4, 1908. The 48-star flag came into use on July 4, 1912, and this event is clearly is not 1911, when Lubec celebrated its Centennial with a town-wide profusion of bunting. The uniforms worn remain unidentified, close scrutiny shows only one word legible on the banner held high, “Commander.” Jacob Clark Pike built the house at 2 Church Street, directly across the unpaved road from the Congregational Church. In the distance may be seen the George McCurdy house on Main Street; both of these houses remain occupied as of 2010.
