Waterfront, Calais, ca. 1910

Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum


In this circa 1910 photo taken from the St. Stephen shore, a steamship, possibly the Henry Eaton, is docked at the upper landing in Calais.

The Calais end of the international bridge can be seen to the far right. Steamboats made daily round trips from Calais to Robbinston, St. Andrews and Eastport.

At times of very low tide, steamboat passengers were forced to disembark at the lower landing on Steamboat Street, and relied on one of the many livery stables to provide transportation into town.

To the right of the steamboat is a river tug, and to the left are the Murchie lumber wharves and Upper Main Street. The prominent building to the left facing the river is the Andrews Hotel at the corner of Whitney Street.
