With an official 136 islands in the Casco Bay, it figured prominently in the War of 1812, serving as an anchorage for US Naval ships. The waters that are surrounded by Portland, Maine have long served as the primary economic driver for the city, and commercial fishing is an essential industry.
Produced by George H. Walker’s lithography company in 1906, this stunning depiction shows the railroads and steamship lines that were so important to the region. Walker’s grandson and great-grandson would later both become President of the United States. The peninsula was originally settled in 1632 as a fishing and trading village. By the turn of the 20th century, the region was well known for its sailing and sport fishing.
By 1911 five railroads used the city as a hub, and it remains the largest city in Maine. These hubs were essential for the region, and goods flowed into the Northeast and Canada. The nearby town of Deering was annexed by Portland in 1899 and greatly expanded the area for development away from the shoreline.
The Grand Trunk Railroad was completed in 1852 and served as the primary source for imports to Montreal, especially crucial in the winter months when the city became inaccessible by water. This trade route was an important income source for residents of Portland, and the Portland Rail Company produced more than 600 locomotives. This stunning depiction shows the city in a time of great prosperity and is truly an authentic piece of cartographical history.
