HISTORIC PORTSMOUTH #68

The unpaved roads, cobblestone crosswalks, ox carts and ship masts are gone. Signs show the shops of Josiah S. James (flour and grain), Charles E. Boynton ("small beer"), John F. Shillaber (gunsmith) and George C. Wendell (blacksmith). The two wooden buildings, long missing from modern Bow Street were then carpenter and joiner shops located next to Eldredge’s Brewery office.
