Coaling Station Display Created
(Lamoine) — Bob Alvarez loves old ships, and has a special fascination
with those that utilized the US Navy Coaling Station in the early 1900’s.
With an extensive collection of pictures obtained over many years and
from various sources, Alvarez has put together a framed display for the
town hall. A short history of the coaling station will go into the frame,
along with a brief history of the USS Massachusetts, one of the North
Atlantic fleet ships that refueled at the station. The frame will hang
at the town hall, and Alvarez invites anyone with other items from the
station to add to the collection.
