Main Street, Thomaston, ca. 1910

Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum

Description

The elms that form a leafy arch across Thomaston’s Main Street were planted at the time of the American Centennial in 1876.

Two dogs cross the shaded dirt road, which was populated by trolley tracks, a horse and buggy, and wagons. Note the unusual wagon at the left built to haul newly made lime casks to the lime kilns on Rockland, Rockport, or Thomaston harbors.
