Main Street, Norway, ca. 1925

Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum


A view of Main Street in Norway from about 1925, taken by the Eastern Illustrating and Publishing Co. At left is the Knights of Pythias Hall.

The large white block at Main and Greenleaf streets housed George W. Hobbs’ variety store until 1913 when Hobbs’ son-in-law A.L. Clark opened his drug store there.

One of three Norway drug stores in the 1920s, the A.L. Clark Drug Company was a downtown fixture for a quarter century, closing in 1938. Note the Coca-Cola signs in the windows, indicating the presence of a soda fountain.
