First, the Saco River idylls can be found at the link below.

As for the two questions: first, does this swimming hold on the West Side Road still exist or has development, natural causes, or politics closed it?

Second, I made my first climb of Lowe's Path in the 1970s and if I remember correctly, I parked at Lowe's garage and store. Are the store and garage still there, has development sprung up around it? Does anyone have a current picture of Lowe's that they could share ?

Thanks and regards
