Today's #TBT is a photo from the The Library of Congress of the Riverton Park Casino, designed by John Calvin Stevens, c.1900. Maine Historical Society's Memory Network gives this description of the park's creation and ultimate demolition: "The park was developed by the Portland Railroad Company in 1896 as a popular day-trip destination via trolley. It offered a variety of amusements, including a dining hall, theater, boating facilities, a small zoo, and a midway. An advertisement for entertainment in July 1897 featured Alabama troubadours, buck-and-wing dancers, the Jubilee Singers, plus a 'balloon ascension and parachute adventure with Monsieur Roberto, Meteor of the Sky!' The casino was demolished in 1933 after several years of inactivity." The park still offers a 2-mile walking trail, which you can read more about on Portland Trails' website here: http://trails.org/our-trails/riverton-trolley-park/

One of our SMRTers, Jamie, had the unique opportunity to jam with her bluegrass group for James Franco and the cast/crew of his upcoming movie, The Pretenders. She hosts a weekly session with local musicians at the Cohoes Senior Center in Troy, NY, and the production crew invited them to share the space and play as scheduled while they ate their dinner. What a cool opportunity!
