Streets--Maintenance and repair, Lincoln Park (Portland, Me.), First Baptist Church (Portland, Me.), Church of the Messiah (Portland, Me.),
In 1919, $211,500 was appropriated for maintenance and construction work on streets, sidewalks, and bridges throughout the city of Portland. The section of street depicted in this photograph was improved using new split redressed granite block paving. This picture was taken before the improvements were made.
On the right is Lincoln Park, and on the left, located on the corner of Congress and Wilmot, is the First Baptist Church. In the block between Wilmot and Quincy Street is Callas Bros., a confectionery store. On the right, after the park on the corner of Congress and Franklin, is The Hub Furniture Co. In the far distance on the right is the Church of the Messiah.
