Portland, Maine - The West End (Part 1)

Here is the 4th in my series of Portland, Maine posts. This one will cover some of the West End, another densely-built residential neighborhood on Portland's central peninsula. The West End is highly historic, and is (apparently) considered one of the best-preserved Victorian urban neighborhoods in the country. I recently moved to this neighborhood, and I have been trying to take photos whenever I can.

Links to my other Portland posts:

A rare case of an attached triple-decker. Since the building it is attached to appears to predate it, I'm assuming the triple-decker was built attached like that.




















Longfellow Square





the former Mercy Hospital building.













































Bonus: here's a picture of a crazy sunset the other day near where I work in South Portland. This photo has not been edited or filtered at all.

Winter Street is an apt name for many of the images here!

Winter Street in winter? I see what you did there.
