Lodowick H. Bradford (1820–85) married a Gloucester girl, Martha Brown, in 1849, shortly after he went into business in Boston as an engraver and then as an engraver/lithographer. Bradford lived between Gloucester and Boston and is buried in Gloucester. (1)

In Boston Lithography, Catharine Slautterback notes that Lane was chosen over several other lithographers to go with Bradford in 1855 when he needed a printer for Castine, View from Hospital Island and View of Gloucester, Mass. (2)
