Driving on West Commercial, my eye is quite often pulled to these extended group of buildings. I guess there is just something about the juxtaposition of these beautiful pastel structures of the old Portland Star Match Corp., a now defunct match company that was founded in 1866, and the city's rugged working waterfront that intrigues me. In 1890, it was the second largest match company in New England. Does this happen to anyone else? Got buildings, sights or benchmarks on your daily routines that just beg for a glance? Why is this, I wonder?
