Train station and waterfront, Bangor flood, 1902

This record was added to Maine Memory Network through the efforts of a student at William S. Cohen School.


The Bangor train station and waterfront during the Bangor Flood of March 20, 1902 looking southeasterly from the Bangor side of the Penobscot River down the river and across the river toward Brewer.

In the foreground is a partially-submerged line of boxcars and the train station which is also partially submerged. In the middle of the photo is a double-masted schooner typical of those used commonly to ship lumber and other products on the Penobscot River and along the coast of Maine. The flood was a one-day event caused by ice and log jams on the river.
