from roofs around the city. Here's some seen looking out of a Cumberland Avenue window, towards the Westin Portland Harborview Hotel. Now, that's a mouthful. It all seemed so much easier when it was just the Eastland Hotel. At the Stevens Avenue house there was a corner on the driveway side where ice ran from the roof to the ground. It was thick too, about 8-10 inches. My self-appointed job each February was to 'take it down'. The backside of an axe accomplished the task nicely. The thought that I might have been doing severe damage to the roof never crossed my mind.
My life of innocence continued.
