Portland is often associated with the mythological phoenix, the animal that rises out of the ashes of its apparent death. Life here has often been a struggle: to overcome the disastrous fires of 1775 and 1866; to rebuild after the change in Canadian policy in 1920 that devastated the waterfront; and to outlast the Depression and the other economic crises that have affected the area. The people of Portland have always faced these problems head on, survived, and rebuilt the city stronger then it was before. This delightful pictorial history is a moving tribute to their spirit and drive.
Portland features more than 200 images that together document life in Maine’s largest city over the last 130 years. We see immigrants arrive from all corners of the world and watch as they build lives and businesses in their new home; we witness the waterfront and Congress Street rise, fall, and rise again; and we observe how the political scene has changed and been changed by everyday people. Perhaps the most interesting photographs are those of everyday life: of people working, playing sports, relaxing, falling in love, and living life to its fullest.
