Original caption
South-west view of Bangor - The above shows the appearance of Bangor as it is approached by railroad from Boston and Portland; the first spire on the left is that of the Unitarian Church; the next prominent building to the right is the Bangor House. The railroad depot appears below the spires. The Catholic Cathedral, one of the most prominent objects in the city when approached from the south, appears a little to the left from the bridge.
