This is a view of the east side of Main Street in Rockland looking north.
The three-story, brick buildings on the right, beginning at the right and moving north, include: the Berry and Cobb Block (sometimes called the Masonic Block) with Cobb, Wight & Norton Ship Stores & Grocers on the first floor; the Custom House Block with fancy hood moldings above the second and third story windows; the three sections of the Kimball Block; and the lighter colored Wise & Kimball Block.
The two American flags hanging from the Custom House Block have their stars arranged in different patterns. The carriages are processing to a ceremony at Achorn Cemetery.
