This photograph shows the river entrance to Riverside Park which provided popular summertime entertainments from 1898 to 1916. Notice the peaked structure over the bridge spanning the deep ravine and the electrical wires.

A newspaper advertisement claimed, "Riverside:12,000 people at the park yesterday. Nothing like it ever known in Eastern Maine."
