Rundlet-May House

Second Floor: Bed Chamber of Ralph May intro

This mid-century image by the prolific photographer Douglas Armsden (1918-2009) from Kittery Point shows Ralph May’s room much as it appears today.

The painting of the Lord family home is above the mantel, and the bedcoverings and hooked rugs convey a sense of nostalgia.  Ralph May was a noted historian in Portsmouth and gifted the Rundlet-May House to Historic New England in 1971.
