South End Street


The South End of Portsmouth has always had a special place in my heart.  Tiny streets, old houses, historic clapboards, charm.  It makes me love our dynamic downtown that much more, and appreciate the unchanged wcharacter of this area as well.  Lucky for these residents, the city has invested significantly in its infrastructure – repaving and adding brick sidewalks whenever possible.

  1. I wish I could see the “Akerman” house which I believe is on the tour of the Strawberry Banke. Has it ever been caught in a photo? I was told it is tagged in the tour. My great grandfather, Amos Tappan Akerman was born there. His father was Benjamin Akerman; his grandfather was Joseph Akerman. I hope someday to be able to visit Portsmouth; so far, it is just out of realm of possibility. For now, I do enjoy your photos.
