In 1917, my grandparents were living at 217 1/2 Sheridan Street in Portland. I have tried to bring the address up on Google and Mapquest. Does anyone know if the house still exists or where I might find a picture of the street from that time period? Thank you

No. I have just started looking and hoped maybe someone was familiar with the area.

the street sounds familiar but i'm not terribly familiar with portland, it might have been moved. depending on the time in question the "old port" has changed a lot including the demolishing of the entire "little italy" and its surrounding buildings and some streets.

I'm very familiar with Portland and it's streets. It looks like Sheridan only went to number 198 at Walnut Street. There has been no real construction or razing of this area of Munjoy Hill. What where your grandparents names that lived on Sheridan?

Here's a link to 217 1/2 Sheridan St on Google Map (click on 'earth' in the upper right for the picture version). Looks like it's still there.
