1919 Photograph of Maurice B. Durgin, presumably of Portland, Maine; and a Possible Photograph of his Home

Photograph dated January 21, 1919 of Maurice B. Durgin in uniform, possibly Maurice Bartholomew Durgin (1887-1979), a native of Westbrook, Maine, who, with first wife Albina T. (Boivin) Durgin, raised his family in Portland, Maine. After Albina's death, Maurice married Ellen Elizabeth Young.

The home pictured below, with the name "Maurice Durgin" in handwriting similar to that on the photograph above, may have been the residence of this same Durgin family. The house may have been their home in Portland, Maine, on Dingley Court, or it may have been where the family lived while Maurice worked as a customs inspector in northern Washington County, Maine.

If you recognize either of these photographs and can confirm that they pertain to the Maurice B. Durgin family of Maine, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
