Description

Two coal schooners at the Biddeford dock, the one visible owner's name is Charles H. Klinck, posted on the bow of the vessel.

This era was when coal (not oil) was the major fuel for power and heat.

Slightly left on the skyline in the rear can be seen the spire of Foss Street Methodist Church and right of center, the spire of St. Andre's Catholic Church.
