The Sewer Pipe Gang

Sewer Pipe Gang 1890 / Strawbery Banke Museum ArchiveStrawbery Banke Presents
HISTORIC PORTSMOUTH #49

With the city streets again torn up, this photo seems an apt tribute. What can be accomplished rapidly today with a small crew and a backhoe, once took 100 men with picks and shovels. This 1890s-era group posed on Pleasant Street in front of old Unitarian Church (erected 1807) -- now gone the way of these hardworking Portsmouth laborers.
