Ode to the Custom House

These three photos taken earlier this evening showcase one of my favorite buildings, the United States Custom House in Portland's Old Port. It has been a landmark in our city since completion in 1872 and is still in use today as offices for some governmental agencies (although the U.S. Customs department moved out a few years ago). You can read a lot more about the building and its history here.
