Looks like we just got a few inches of snow today, but I'll take it. Stay tuned for nighttime snow photos the rest of the week. This one is from Post Office Park in the Old Port.

Neal Dow House, Night

A nighttime view of the Neal Dow House at 714 Congress Street. It is a National Historic Landmark because of it's namesake. Neal Dow wore many hats: Mayor of Portland (1851–58), brigadier general in the American Civil War, an abolitionist, a leader of the temperance movement, and the Prohibition Party's presidential candidate in 1880. The building is currently home to the Maine Woman’s Christian Temperance Union.

Congress Square Clock

A bit of the surrounding buildings reflected against the old Union Station clock tower which sits in Congress Square Park. Once the square is redesigned the clock will find a new home. Perhaps it will join a portion of the old Union Station train shed that is over at Thompson's Point.

Throwback Thursday: Fore Street, January 2011

Here's the weekly look back. This is from above Fore Street, taken back in January 2011. The U.S. Custom House is one of my favorite buildings and it looks rather grand from this angle.

Winter clothing hangs along a fence near the Deering Oaks Pond on a recent afternoon. The clothing, free for those in need, was gathered and placed by a local "Scarf Mob."
