HISTORIC PORTSMOUTH #136

Charles David Garland ran his West Rye general store from 1879 until the 1920s. Garland’s business shipped 15,000 bushels of potatoes and 300 tons of hay in a single year. His delivery wagon here carries some "cocoanut dainties", vanilla wafers and Quaker puffed cereal. How times don’t change.



HISTORIC PHOTOS of the Greater Portsmouth Area appear here weekly
