Abstract

When it was built in 1910, Portland's Fidelity Trust building (now home to the Maine Bank & Trust) stood 25 feet higher than any building in Boston. The 150-foot Beaux Arts landmark on Congress Square was designed by G. Henri Desmond of Boston, who also designed the Maine State House. With details on the building's current tenants and a discussion by historian William David Barry on the vagaries of Portland's architectural history.
