The Maine Steamship Company operated between New York City and Portland, with direct conections by sea to Bar Harbor and by land to the White Mountains in New Hampshire, and Poland Springs, Maine--all popular summer resort areas.
In 1902 summer excursion fare from New York to Friendship, with a connection from Portland to Friendship on the Portland and Rockland Steamboat line, was $6.25 one-way and $11.50 roundtrip. The steamer to Friendship sailed on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
