This is a view of Main Street looking south from the roof of the Wise & Kimball Block in Rockland. The sliver of a building showing on the right with the covered sidewalk is the Kimball & Spofford Block at the corner of Limerock Street. The three-story brick building across Limerock Street containing Merrill's Drug Store on the corner of the first floor is the newer half of the Berry Block and beside it is the older half of the Berry Block. The flaired Mansard roof in the center of the image is on the Pillsbury Block. The corner of the building on the left side of the image is on the Kimball Block adjacent to the Wise & Kimball Block.
