An image scanned from a color postcard depicting the Cape Cottage Casino in Cape Elizabeth near Portland, Maine. Undated.

Cape Cottage Casino and Theater was one of several amusement parks developed in the late 1890s by Portland’s electric railways in order to increase business on their trolley lines.

The oceanfront entertainment casino, designed by architect John Calvin Stevens, was built in 1899 and operated until its sale in 1922, following the demise of transportation by trolley.
