1916 – USGS Map of the “Portland Quadrangle”
This map is the 1943 reprint and includes from 70° 15′ to 70° 30′W and 43° 30′ to 43° 30′N. The map includes all of Portland and Scarboro and much of Westbrook, South Portland, Old Orchard, Saco and parts of Windham, Gorham, Buxton, and Cape Elizabeth. This map is of particular interest as it shows the locations of the various railroad lines in 1916 including the various electric rails, such as the “Portland and Saco Electric,” various schools, such as the “Broad Turn School,” and places of interest such as the “Buggy Meeting House.” This map is available at Digital Maine and the USGS.
