They say a picture is worth a thousand words. For those who grew up on the Seacoast, these pictures are full of beloved and fond memories.

Maybe your mom was a bookkeeper at J.J Newberry for years. Maybe you had your very first job at Woolworth's or "Woolies", as the locals liked to call it.

Or maybe you furnished your entire house with furniture from Atherton's. Surely the world has always had its problems, but I think it goes without saying that these photos were taken during simpler times.

So, take a stroll down memory lane with me! These photos are courtesy of Susan Olson-Pendergraft via the "You grew up/lived in southern N.H./ME. seacoast if you remember" Facebook group.
