Brick Walls of Portsmouth (Name that Building)

Portsmouth’s historical fabric is pretty evident all around the city, its streets and its buildings.  Today’s post features two brick walls in the city, both belonging to buildings that are more than 100 years old.  I love the richness of the character of the buildings in town, many have been painted, advertised on, cleaned, repointed, etc.

In the comments – take your best guess at which buildings these are and/or where they’re located.

Also, check out another self portrait below then head over to The Beer Drinking Report for a post about Bella Sol, the new restaurant seen below that looks set to open now that the wraps are off the windows.

Fresh Snow at Strawbery Banke & Portsmouth Harbor Light

Today’s shots feature Strawbery Banke with some freshly fallen snow. Above is a panoramic shot of the museum campus and the former Puddle Dock neighborhood with the North Church visible in the background.  Below is another shot from my  trip to Fort Constitution, where you can see just how cold the Fort’s stone wall is with the ice built up from the snow and sea spray. View on large for a nice crisp shot of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse (you can even see Whaleback Light in the distance). The fresh snow definitely made for a lovely walk on Monday afternoon.
