A delivery wagon at one of the warehouses at the Poland Spring resort and water company in August 1887.

The Poland Mineral Spring Water from the spring on the Ricker property was so popular that Hiram Ricker began sharing it with family and friends in 1845 and made the first commercial sales by 1859. People also went to the resort to drink the water.
