Old Customs House, Portland, Maine

Long a centerpiece of the bustling port life of Portland, Maine, the Federal Customs House has stood guard on the harbor since the 19th Century.  It is now in the hands of a private developer.

Built in the Second Empire style, the building is still beautiful shrouded in scaffolding.  Below, Mercury, the Roman god of messengers, appropriately adorns the building.

The Customs House can be seen throughout the Old Port area.
