Bangor Photo Tour: Stop #1

A Mark in Maine reader requested a few pictures from around Bangor so he could get a “better feel” for the place.

Good idea.

I’ll post pictures I’ve made from around the city occasionally. The pictures will be from the photogenic neighborhoods, historic sites, famous or infamous places, street pictures or just town oddities that make Bangor….Bangor.

To start this feature off, here’s the Thomas Hill Standpipe, just a couple of blocks away from our place….and up a  steep hill. I think it’s the most charming thing in Bangor. The standpipe (Also know as a water tower anywhere else in the world) was built in 1897 and is still a functioning part of the Bangor water department. I like how they light it up at night. There’s a great view of it when you drive south through town on I-95.

The water department opens up the observation deck every quarter. I went up for a look last fall. Great views. Those pictures will be in a future Bangor Photo Tour post.
