Swan Island Airport

Swan Island Airport
I came across this picture postcard the other day when I was looking for information about Swan Island Radio. At first I thought it was somebody's Tom Swift fantasy, I mean no one would try and put an airport in downtown Portland, and Swan Island (there is one in Portland) isn't anywhere near big enough, is it?

    Turns out it was a real thing, a hundred years ago. It was big business for 20 years or so, they even built a fancy terminal building.
