The (former) Children's Museum of Portsmouth

Yet another of Portsmouth’s gorgeous spires/clocktowers, this one located atop the former location of the Children’s Museum, which has since relocated to Dover, NH.  This old building is located along Marcy Street in Portsmouth’s historic South End, just beyond Prescott Park as you head towards New Castle.  This spire hasn’t been as fortunate as the North Church, which saw a full restoration in recent years.

Clocktower | North Church, Portsmouth, NH

Most people take pictures of the whole steeple, since it is really quite magnificent from wherever you are in Portsmouth.  One evening I hiked up to the top of the Hanover Street parking garage to snap some pics during sunset, and was more level with the clock than I’d ever been….and thought I’d try to work some magic.  Take a walk up sometime, it’s a unique perspective on something you usually admire from the ground level.  Happy Memorial Day weekend to all, and thanks to all those who have served for our Country.
