Image Info

The north side of Water Street in Skowhegan, looking west.

The large brick building is Coburn Hall, which burned in 1904. The sign on the awning is Farrand, a tailor. Other occupants of Coburn Hall block at that time may have been W. R. G. Estes, clothier; Bixby & Phillips, druggists, and James P. Blunt, hardware dealer.

The small building just at the right of Coburn Hall was formerly the Eben H. Neal store. A little later this firm became Patten & Neal. Still later the firm became Neal & Wentworth, a general grocery store. The structure was moved to the east side of Court Street. The Griffin Building replaced it.

The truck team in front of the Hall & Grant store was owned by the late Hiram Thing.

Notice the unpaved street.
