Higgins Beach Hot Dog Stand


We are often asked the history question of "Do you remember a hot dog stand on Higgins Beach and where was it?"  Well, it's pictured above behind these two beautiful child models.  On the right is the one and only Brad Thompson who now owns the house where the web cam is hosted.  Best estimate on the date of the photo is 1942-1943.  Anybody who knows the identity of the young lady standing with Brad is welcome to contact us.

The hot dog stand was run by Red Bolling who many will remember as the H. P. Hood milkman on the beach for many years.  Red later capitalized on his beach vending experience by opening Red's ice cream stand which still operates today on Cottage Road in South Portland.  Red as passed but his son still operates the ice cream stand.
