Union Station, Portland, Maine

Union station opened in June of 1888 and was torn down in 1961 to make way for a shopping plaza. The furor over the razing of the station marked the beginning of the Greater Portland Landmarks organization and the preservation of historic buildings in Portland.

This is a humdinger of a card! I know exactly where this is in Maine. I want to hop into one of those lined up cars. I am so excited about your new blog. This has truly made my day!
