HISTORIC PORTSMOUTH #112

So you’re planning to a drive on Labor Day. Good for you. Gas is cheaper you can find a pump station for that chain-driven 1902 Winton. With most NH roads unpaved, be sure to wear your duster. Breakdowns are as common than rain, but take heart. The AAA opened in 1902 -- if you can find a phone.
