    Just the type of Yankee article that I look forward to seeing in each issue. Markham Starr’s photographs are really captured the essence of the people involved . Hope to see more of his work in Yankee!
    Keep featuring our New England traditions and attractions,

    People Like Miss Lela are the :salt of the earth” people. What a woman. And such a sad tale!

    Would love to see an article in Yankee Magazine about the Inn at the Wharf in Lubec, Maine, a former sardine cannery that is now a unique Inn and lobster business. We found this by accident, thanks to a motel that sent us there as they had no vacancies. What a terrific find! We went back for a second visit. Hope to see this someday in your magazine. Thank you.
