Main Street, Wiscasset, ca. 1925

Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum

Description

The presence of the automobile was already being felt on Wiscasset’s Main Street when this picture was taken in the 1920s.

Cars line each side of the street with only one horse and buggy in sight. A curbside gas station stands in front of the brick Runlett Block, at the right, and a traffic signal exhorts motorists to slow down.

The photograph looks north to a wooden bridge that crosses the Sheepscot River.
