Theresa Babb (1868-1948) was married to C. Wilkes Babb, director of Knox Mill, Camden, Maine. For reasons unknown, she also possessed a gift for taking spontaneous and immediate photographs of her friends and family - such as these, while picnicking.
Writing in the Penobscot Bay Pilot, Barbara F. Dyer tells us that ‘The Babb family has been a prominent family in Camden for many years and still live in town today’.
‘Theresa was a member of the St. Thomas Episcopal Church, the Monday Club, the Monday Evening Reading Club, the Camden Garden Club and the the Camden Outing Club.’
