1924 - Looking East on Congress Street Toward City Hall

This view was probably made from the roof of the Porteous Department Store – now the location of the Maine College of Art.

The newly constructed Chapman Building offered eleven floors of office space and a commercial arcade.

Cars and electric trolleys filled Congress Street.
