John Martin of Bangor, who lived in Hampden as a child, drew this illustration -- and provided explanations -- of the neighborhood in Hampden where he lived with his mother and stepfather, Anna and Solomon Raynes.Show Details
Martin (1823-1904) drew the neighborhood, detailing inhabitants of all the properties, as it was between 1833 and 1835 and included it as page 63 of his journal. He began writing the journal about his life in 1864.
Martin worked as an accountant and shopkeeper. His journal details his interests in nearly everything around him: architecture, gardening, business, transportation, fashion, and dance, among other topics.
