Description of City/Town

Calais is a small, but pleasing city. There are many tasteful and handsome residences. Several of the streets have shade-trees of recent, and others of ancient growth; and some have charming vistas. There is an odor of pine lumber about the city, with just enough of the provincial character accompanying to give a fresh and attractive flavor to the place.
