Portland Star Match Company

As mentioned in my post last week, here are some more photos of the Portland Star Match Company building on West Commercial Street. Congrats Ethan V. and RobC for correctly identifying the building based on my photographic hint.



And this photo is of the nearby wilderness. The West End neighborhood is on top of the hill to the left of this photo, the Portland Star Match Building is straight ahead somewhere, and West Commercial Street is to the right. Note the railroad tracks that used to run through this industrial area. The spot this photo was taken from is the site of a proposed new development. Also, along this railroad right-of-way is space for a possible trail connection between the new Veteran's Bridge and downtown by Portland Trails.
