Description

From the Wednesday, June 19, 1912 Bangor Daily Commercial newspaper:

"The biggest carnival parade ever seen in Bangor, probably the longest parade of any sort ever seen here, passed through the city Tuesday. It was a magnificent aggregation of artistic arrangement of decorative material, beautiful women and children and fine rigs.

From where the processions rear rested far down on the Hampden road to the food of Exchange Street, there was almost a continuous line of floats, wagons, carriages, and fire apparatus, the entire horse drawn equipment of the Bangor Fire Department being in parade.

As the procession passed along the music of the two bands, the various floats were loudly applauded as now one, then another, party of friends discovered familiar faces or firm names on the floats."

The Hincks Coal Co. sold coal and wood. Main office for the company was at 104 Broad Street, while the coal yard was at 50 Front Street, and the wood yard at 222 Broad Street. The 1912 Bangor city directory does not provide any additional information about the company, such as the owner or otherwise.

The background shows Fifield & Co., located at 263 Main Street and the corner of Cedar Street. The company was a druggist and seller of periodicals. Owner was Henry F. Fifield

This building is currently the location of the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter.
