What a great find, this is an old photo of Exchange Street in Bangor, Maine! I started looking at images for the 1800s and stumbled upon this photo in downeastdilettante’s blog post. If you are interested in Bangor, Maine or Maine history in general then please visit this location where I found this image: https://downeastdilettante.wordpress.com/page/19/ for there are wonderful photos and comments to luxuriate in.
I’m working on a Bangor, Maine historical and loving the rich details and history of this area. I wish to thank my sweet friend, Marie Kathleen Cutler Smith, for suggesting this location. She had moved from there to Wisconsin and so loved this town. Rumor has it that there is a town in Maine named after her family name, Cutler!
Marie’s suggestion also prompted me to write “Welcome” for the Splickety Love 1.2 Magazine. “Welcome” took place during the late 1780s when women would gather at their homes for all-female prayer meetings. At this time Bangor was called Penobscot. I discovered those story details in CITY ON THE PENOBSCOT A COMPREHENSIVE HISTORICAL OF THE BANGOR,MAINE by Trudy Irene Scee.
Finding courageous and imaginative individuals who took hold of faith and purpose is always inspiring to me. Have a wonderful day, thank you for stopping here to share a thought or two.
