  1. Noticing the stack of wood on the curb, is it true that it was shared by the community? Wish we had that now days, I’m out of wood! PLEASE no more snow!

  2. Wasn’t there a vintage picture some time ago of a neighborhood street that showed wood stacked in front of all of the houses on that street? Does anyone know where that picture is, or one similar to it?

  3. that’s the year I was born but we lived across the street from a Piggly Wiggly off of burnside on King Street. My mom had no car so she walked to work as a nurse to ST. Vincent’s and we rode the streetcar to downtown

  4. There used to be a South Portland column in the CTLH newspaper that talked about the streetcar on Corbett.

    Apparently the parallel streets that go up the hill at the very south end of Corbett had something to do with the streetcar getting enough momentum to come back up the hill going north. Wish I could remember more details.
