A few people mistakenly guessed that last week’s Mystery Photo was the Music Hall on Lisbon Street in Lewiston. Dan Levesque, from Auburn, who was chosen as this week’s winner, initially thought it was the Music Hall but was suspicious and went to his extensive library of books and publications local to check. He found his answer in the Auburn Centennial Book published for the city’s centennial in 1969. He wrote it in his email. “The picture shows) . . . the old Mechanic’s Savings Bank building at 79 Main St., Auburn. Although the bank was incorporated in 1875, it was originally housed in the Auburn Hall building (today City Hall) until (the new building was) ready for occupancy in June 1889. The construction cost was then $50,000. The building currently houses several businesses. Dan will receive a $20 gift card courtesy of Hannaford.
