Reflections of the Memorial Bridge

The Memorial Bridge has made an appearance on The Daily Portsmouth on several occasions.  This only further underlines its presence and importance as part of Portsmouth’s rich historic fabric, and the fact that it can be seen from so many different places downtown.  This week presented further developments in the efforts to save the Memorial and the Sarah Long bridges connecting Portsmouth, NH to Kittery, ME.  Read the Portsmouth Herald’s July 29th article HERE.  Don’t be afraid to join the conversation.

The Famed Decks of Portsmouth

I’m not sure there are too many better ways to spend a warm and sunny evening than out on one of Portsmouth’s famed decks, enjoying a cold beverage.  Left to right are Harpoon Willy’s, The River House and the Old Ferry Landing.

Portsmouth Fabric Company | Penhallow Street

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.
