Full exterior view of building at 21-23 Sheridan Street, from southwest. The third-floor apartment, on the 23 side of the building, was the childhood home of six-time Oscar winning film director John Ford. Born John Martin Feeney on 1 February 1894 in Cape Elizabeth, the family subsequently moved to the building on Munjoy Hill and owned a store at 42 Center Street near Gorham's Corner. The latter location became the site of the John Ford statue, in 1998.
