  1. Hi Pam,
    This is an old post, so this comment may be in vain. Does Chalmers studio still exist? I would assume not, but i am looking for family Photos, some i have found produced at Chalmers. Specifically of Nickerson, Fogg, White, if you have any info let me know. You can use or g-mail. Thanks! S. Page

    1. Wish I could tell you. You could try asking on the Penobscot County Genealogical Society FB page - there are some Bangor historians on there.
