Circa Date

1887-1895

Description

Intersection of Hammond and Central Streets in Bangor, Maine, circa 1887-1895. Estimate based on businesses shown in photograph cross-referenced with Bangor city directories. Zoom-in reveals a rather astonishing amount of electrical wires above street level, and a number of businesses.

Under Drugs and Medicines, is H.C Goodenow's Office. Henry C. Goodenow, a lawyer in Bangor, died June 1895. A. (Adolphus) J. Chapman, Attorney and U.S. Claim Agent, who died in 1893, had an office in the same building. Also in this building was Ara Warren's business, an apothecary.

On the pole with reading Roses/Florist, magnification reveals this to be Beers Florist. Carl Beers is listed in city directories as a florist and veterinary surgeon.

Located in the next block are:

Lyford & Woodward, a hats and furs shop at 33 Hammond Street. Thornton Lyford and Charles E. Woodward, proprietors.

D.M. Howard and Son general insurance agents at 23 Hammond. Daniel M. and George Fred Howard.

Adolf Pfaff, watchmaker and jeweler, at 25 Hammond.

Chapman's Clothing Co. at 51 Hammond. John E. Chapman owner.
