Celia's Birthplace old photo
Although no birth certificate exists, Celia's grand-daughter Rosamund tells us in her book "Sandpiper" that the second building on the left is where the Isles of Shoals poet was born on June 29, 1835. (Photo from "Sandpiper" Courtesy Peter E Randall publishing)

Celia's Birthplace new photo
Today 50 Daniel Street in Portsmouth, NH looks like this. The building on the right is a restaurant and Celia's birthplace is now the site of a specialty housewares shop. In 1999 a plaque was finally dedicated on the building by the Isles of Shoals Historic and Research Association (ISHRA). Photo by J. Dennis Robinson.
