This sort of looks like a 'ghost street', but it's not. Just caught on an early, lazy Sunday morning. It's is a look up Fore Street. The New Hampshire granite building seen in the distance is the United States Customhouse. Built in 1868 by Alfred B. Mullett using the Renaissance Revival and Second Empire styles (whatever that is), it stands as a testament to Portland's long maritime history. One of my favorite restaurants in the city is situated first on the left here Fore Street and across the street is the Hub Furniture building. It's claim to fame? I think it has had a 'going out of business' sale for close to 40 years! I've been in it twice. Once with Dad way back, looking for God knows what, and another time with Elenka a few years back on a quest for a couch. The inside is frozen in time. It's the building that 'time forgot'. It's a museum. A sale lasting about 40 years? Now, that's an amazing feat.
