Soldiers and Sailors

Putting the 'monument' in Portland's Monument Square. From

"Sculpted by Franklin Simmons, dedicated in 1891 to Portland's soldiers & sailors who served in the Civil War."

Here's a photo from 1902 (that I didn't take, as it was 84 years before I was born!) showing the area which has changed a lot over the last century....

For more historial photographs of the area, I highly recommend the Maine Memory Network, an offering by the Maine Historial Society. I look forward to posting some 'before and after' shots soon!
