Charles Quincy Goodhue (1835-1910), a Portland amateur artist, spent the last 20 years of his life sketching Portland as it looked before the fire of 1866.

This drawing depicts Fort Loyal at the foot of India Street in Portland, as it appeared in the 1840s.
The fort was built about 1680, after area Indians and residents of Falmouth (later Portland) signed a peace treaty.

Fort Loyal held captured Native Americans during the second "Indian War," which began in 1688.
