One India Street

Pictured at the bottom of India Street is the old Grand Trunk Railway steamship office building. The building dates back to 1903 and is the last remaining piece of what used to be a bustling railroad complex in this neighborhood. I'm happy to see the building is now being saved from decay by local bank Gorham Savings Bank​ (this is not a paid endorsement, but I use them for my small business checking) and will soon get a much needed facelift.

Flag Buoys

These painted buoys are part of a project by artist Natasha Mayers with the Portland Public Schools. Per this news release, "under Natasha’s leadership, community members and students are working together to paint buoys depicting the flags of the more than 70 countries represented by Portland's newest residents."

Last Light Over Cumberland Avenue

The last light of tonight's sunset beyond Cumberland Avenue. I'm pretty happy that it's not completely dark when I get home from work now.

Footbridge

Since it's Thursday, it's time to go into the archives and post a previously unseen photo. This photo of the footbridge atop Jewell Falls (part of the Portland Trails​ network) is from last October.

City Hall Stairs

A wide angle view of the main stairway within Portland City Hall. The building, which was opened in 1912, was designed by the architecture firm of Carrère and Hastings. Some of their other classic buildings include the New York Public Library and the Standard Oil Building (also in New York).

Bayside to City Hall

Looking towards City Hall from Somerset Street in the Bayside neighborhood. Note the circular window below the City Hall clock tower that retained its view after the buildings on the left (the expanded Merrill Auditorium) and the right (Chestnut Street Lofts) were built.
