Secondhand clothing store of Lloyd Scott, 44 Exchange Street. Scott became vice president of the Portland Union anti-slavery society in 1842. Secondhand clothing stores were essential to the Underground Railroad and became successful businesses for many African Americans. Passengers on the Underground Railroad needed warm clothing. Abolitionist pamphlets were sometimes stitched into clothing given to African American sailors to be distributed throughout the South.
