MMN Item 101151 Zoom


John Martin (18223-1904), a Bangor accountant and shopkeeper who detailed his life and experiences and the communities in which he lived in a series of journals and scrapbooks, drew his son Elmer (1860-1870) in the family's back yard in Bangor in August 1865.

The illustration is on page 124 of Martin's "Scrap & Sketch Book" that he began in 1864. In the corner of the illustration, Martin wrote that Elmer went out to play in the yard and discovered a hammock in his mother's apple tree."
