This image of Back Cove, taken from the East End, shows the Portland & Rochester Railroad Company’s railroad tracks, which crossed through Back Cover to the Preble Street Station. The tracks were actively used until 1891 when the Preble Station was abandoned. The placement of the coal cars suggests this image was taken after the tracks were in active use and used as a holding area for the coal shipment.
