Portsmouth Shopping Circa 1904

Strawbery Banke Presents

Portsmouth was recently designated among the best shopping sites in New England. Here in 1904 two women window shop on Congress St. for bonnets next to a display of fresh bananas at Joseph Dondero’s fruit store. Paintings, books, sheet music and shoes are also in evidence as a peanut vendor turns the crank on his roaster.
