That’d be Portland Maine.
Every year for many years now, I’ve presented a course lecture to the Portland History Docents, a special program that trains volunteers to serve in any of several different historical and cultural organizations in the city. It’s a great program and a privilege to work with them.
The links below are for the text of the 2019 lecture and the accompanying slide show. All images are in the public domain.
