This is Patrick, I use the name Portland Arch when I discuss things that I wouldn't want my name to be attached to publicly, such as items currently before the planning board, which I sit on. I wouldn't like to be perceived as taking an advocacy role or being susceptible to influence from any one direction, so I use this name. You may certainly use the photos, thanks again for asking.
Hello, I have seen your photos of Portland here on archboston.org. And would like your permission to post some of them on my FaceBook site: Portland Maine History 1786 To Present. Patrick said it would be OK with him, and I just wanted to get your approval as well. I would give you or archboston.org credit for the post of the photo, whatever you deem appropriate.
I await your reply,
