Old State Street, Portland, ca. 1900 / Maine Historical Society

State Street, which passes by Deering's woods at its base, climbs to Congress Street and would have been familiar and pleasant terrain for Longfellow. The canopied street with its lofty trees would have been a fond memory of his days in Portland.
