Manuscript map of a plan of Ann (now Park) Street in Portland, as it was about 1802, showing the property of Thomas Robison. Thomas Robison, A Scotsman, lived in Falmouth (Portland) before the war. A Loyalist, Robison went to Canada and served in the British Army during the war. He returned to Falmouth in 1783 and became a prosperous merchant. Robison opened Ann Street (now Park) from Congress Street to the water. This plan was drawn at the time of the pending sale of his holdings and subsequent departure from Portland.
