Portsmouth’s unique alley behind the tugboats and en route to the Decks is known as Ceres Street, which will soon be getting a facelift courtesy of the City. Last time I featured Annabelle’s on the site, people commented that they never knew there was a giant ice cream cone hanging above the door. This view is easily one of my favorites in the city with the different nuances among the brick colors on the rowhouses.

Commercial Alley splits Penhallow St. and Market Street in downtown Portsmouth, NH. This shot taking early in the evening has three of Portsmouth’s hanging signs. For a night shot of the scene, visit HERE.

This beautiful clock now adorns 49 Market Street after the City replaced the tired sidewalks with beautiful new brick walks in 2008, and the owner of Summerwind Jewelers chose to donate this new landmark during the process. The clouds were particularly interesting this evening after some earlier storms and showers. See another take on this landscape at 49 Market.

This view from Penhallow Street towards the waterfront is usually pretty interesting. On a busy weekend you might see people flocking to Annabelle’s for ice cream, or on a summer evening you’ll see crowds heading towards the Decks, or during the winter you might see a massive freighter loading/unloading some materials on the Portsmouth docks.
Today you can see the Middle (Sarah Long) Bridge and the Piscataqua River Bridge in the distance and in the window. It also didn’t hurt to have the most colorful van on the planet in the shot either.
