Plan of North End of Bangor, 1844
MMN Item 100777 Zoom


In 1864, John Martin drew this "Plan of the North End as it was from the Rail Road Bridge to Nath Harlows March 11th 1844."

Martin (1823-1904), an accountant, shopkeeper, and keen observer of all around him, began in 1864 writing a journal about his life and activities and the communities in which he lived. He included hand-drawn illustrations.

Since this map has a specific date, he may have recopied into the journal from earlier notes. He provided details about each building and feature included on the plan. It appears on page 190 of the journal.
