A Day at LL Bean with a Restless Transplant
7 Eyelet Maine Hunting Shoe, 1930s
First thing Friday morning, I linked up with fat cat photographer Foster Huntington of A Restless Transplant and The Fat of the Land. We toured the facilities of LL Bean in Freeport and Brunswick, Maine. In the coming week, we will feature photos from their headquarters, their factory where Bean Boots and Boat and Totes are made, and their historical archives. And I will provide a word or two about the current state of things at a company. Special thanks to Mary Rose MacKinnon and Mac McKeever at Bean for their incomparable hospitality and inexhaustible enthusiasm throughout a truly wonderful day.
