Victorian Portsmouth, Davis Bros. Photos


Visitors to the restored Wentworth-Coolidge mansion today might be surprised to see its crude condition in the late 1800s. It was the Revolutionary war era home of British Governor Benning Wentworth.
See same view today at annual Lilac Festival. (scroll down)
