Title: Portland Observatory Poster
Contributor: Maine Historical Society

The Portland Observatory was restored twice, once in 1936 and then in 1998-2000 due to damage caused by powder post beetles eating away at the wooden posts. The Portland Observatory ceased its flag system operation in 1923 and has been owned by the city since 1937.
