This extraordinary photo, when blown up, shows dozens of Portsmouth students in excellent detail during an outing to Stratham by train. In the center of the kids is the bearded Rev. Henry Emerson Hovey of St. John’s Church, rector from 1883 to 1909. We can only wonder how many influential Portsmouth citizens are among the urchins captured here.
