The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Estab. 1800

The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard is located in Kittery, Maine and is one of the drivers of the area’s economy, employing thousands (yes, thousands) of local workers [visit the official site for more Facts].  This staple of the regional economy has been in operation since 1800 when the facility’s primary task was constructing the 74-gun warship, the USS Washington.  This is a common angle to view the shipyard to those who frequent the dog park, where I learned this weekend a lot of folks like to visit and walk their dogs.  This also looks familiar to visitors of the site, as it makes frequent appearances from my shots in Prescott Park.

  1. We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

    The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the “City Daily Photo Blog” lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a “city” but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

    Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
