As a commercial centre, there is no city in Maine that rivals Bangor. To thousands of people, north, east, west, and even south of it, it is the Mecca of tradesmen, on the one hand coming to town, laden with produce or stock; on the other hand, returning to their household carrying all sorts of necessities or luxuries; or having left an order that demands freight transportation. Commercially then, Bangor ranks first in inportance in the Pine Tree State and has such advantages in location, water power, shipping facilities and abundant profitable surrounding acreage, that should she ever assert herself in these lines, she would become a leader in industrial and manufacturing centres.
