Description

This postcard featuring Union Station clearly shows its proximity to the Kenduskeag Stream, shown in the foreground--just outside the frame of the image trains had to pass over a drawbridge. Built in 1906 by Henry B. Fletcher, the station featured luxurious amenities and was a major architectural feature of the city. The train house is shown to the left.
