Portland History & The Old Port

Here is a photo of Exchange Street, in the Old Port, in 1971.

Forty years ago this year, Portland’s waterfront “warehouse district” was transformed into the “Old Port Exchange” of today.

Many of the buildings had been built in the 19th century.

The original negative, taken by a Portland Press Herald photographer, is in the Portland Room’s Archives.
