Nellie NewellStrawbery Banke Presents
HISTORIC PORTSMOUTH #12

We don’t know whether Helen Newell could really play the banjo. We do know that "Nellie", seen wearing a garland of pinecones, was the daughter of photographer Lafayette V. Newell. Born in Barnstead, Newell married Annie Rider of Portsmouth in 1857. His photography shop on Congress Street created an incredible record of Victorian Portsmouth.
