In another installment of Streets of the South End – Mechanic Avenue is featured…I absolutely love this part of town. Mechanic Ave is located along the waterfront of the back channel in one of Portsmouth’s most picturesque portions of waterfront. This section can somewhat be seen in yesterday’s post, which was taken from the Peirce Island bridge….where you can see the wharfs and the waterfront scene. The Wentworth-Gardner House is the large home featured prominently in the shot – and is one of the best examples of Georgian architecture in the country. You have to click this one to view it LARGE!
