This image shows the intersection of Lincoln and Pearl Streets in Biddeford after the Pepperell Mills' boarding house block was demolished in October of 1909. The Saco and Pettee Shops (later known as the Saco-Lowell Shops) can be seen in the background. Men, probably salvage or demolition crews, work among the debris as two men look on from the sidewalk.
