This addition to the “Parking Lot Series” takes us to the center of Houlton, Maine for a view of Market Square. This facility isn’t a parking lot, instead, it actually is one extra-wide two-way street divided in the middle by a parking island.
The present-day street view of Market Square shows that the Houlton Cinema, the first of two movie theaters closest to the camera on the far left has been torn down. Other than updates to the storefronts the remaining buildings have all survived. Betty Grable in “Wabash Avenue” was playing at the Houlton Cinema at time the photo was taken and the film was released in 1950.
