[The north side of Richmond Street, Boston, in 1866].Wiggin, Charles E.; Walker, William, artist. (http://cat)A watercolor drawing showing four houses on Richmond Street in Boston's North End neighborhood in April 1866. The steeple of the First Episcopal Church on Hanover Street is shown in the background. The four houses have been identified as follows: the birthplace of Charlotte Cushman and home of Elkanah Cushman; birthplace of the actor John G. Gilbert; the residence of Darius Boardman and later Charles Lincoln; residence of Edmund Winchester. This section of Richmond Street, between Salem and Hanover Streets, was re-named Parmenter Street in December of 1870. Drawing was commissioned by Charles E. Wiggin to document the buildings before they were demolished and replaced by the Charlotte Cushman School in 1866. Watercolor is matted with a typed transcription of a letter identifying buildings, the artist, and the facts behind the commissioning of the drawing. Pencil notations on drawing by Charles K. Bolton identifies occupants of buildings. Title based on a pen and ink copy of the watercolor made by Ethel Stanwood Bolton in 1917 (reproduced in the May 21, 1921 edition of the Boston Evening Transcript). Bolton's drawing also identifies the building in a handwritten key under the title. Bolton's pen and ink drawing is in the Boston Athenaeum's Prints & Photographs Department.
