Samuel Clemens a.k.a. Mark Twain was born in Florida in 1835 the night Halley's Comet appeared. At age 4 he moved to Hannibal Mo. where he lived for 14 years. In 1902 he returned to Hannibal to visit his boyhood home as seen in the first 3 photos. Note Tom Sawyer's fence as well as the petite lady with the white dress and umbrella off to the right who then appears to get a better view from the left in the second, hand-painted photo (click to enlarge).
