Two Little Notebooks, c1926, Given Out by Insurance Agency of Wilbor Ambrose Shea (1864-1926) in Eastport, Maine

Two little notebooks given out by Wilbor Ambrose Shea (1864-1926) and his Insurance Agency of Eastport, Maine.  One of the notebooks shows a date of November 26, 1926.

Neither notebook shows the name of the owner; they may have been the same person or two different people; perhaps even Wilbor Ambrose Shea himself.  Neither notebook has many entries.

The notebook below shows one page of what appears to be a list of items and services purchased; the other page shows what appears to be a list of stage or film titles.  Shea, who died in 1926 while returning from Florida, was the owner of Downeast Theatres in Eastport, Calais and Lubec, all in Maine. 

 The other notebook:

If you have a theory as to the identity of the owner(s) of the notebooks, or if you have information to share on the Shea family of Eastport, Maine, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
