Circa Date

1895

Description

West Market Square in downtown Bangor, Maine, showing the intersection of Hammond Street, Main Street, Broad Street, and Central Street, circa 1895.

A good indication that this date is approximately correct is that the "new" Bangor City Hall, the Hersey Building, completed in 1894, can be seen rising above behind the building with "1850" on it.

Standard Clothing Co. (store has what's believed to be a cow on board above street) at 11 Main Street (known then as 14 West Market Square). John F. Crowley, manager.

Postal Telegraph Office at 11 West Market Square. Patrick J. Feeney, manager. This would be site of popular Irish Pub Paddy Murphy's in 2021.

The Fashion, Wood & Ewer at 7 Main, sellers of furs and cloaks. Frank P. Wood and Frank P. Ewer.

Wheelwright and Clark Building is on the right. Building stands in 2021, housing Mexicali Blues and other businesses.
