Weathervane Wednesday - A Trolley Car

I've been collecting photographs of the many, many weather vanes in the Nutfield area (Derry and Londonderry, New Hampshire).  Today's weather vane is nearby, but not in Derry or Londonderry.  If you want a challenge, I'll post the locations at the bottom of the page so you can scroll down far enough to see the photo, but not the location, and try to guess where you may have seen these lovely weathervanes.

Do you know the location of weather vane #21?

Today's weather vane #21 is located in Library Park, Hudson, New Hampshire, at the intersection of Derry Street and Ferry Street (the intersection of Rt. 102 and Rt. 111) .    Recently the Hudson Historical Society gave a presentation about the old railroad and trolley lines in Hudson, and they mentioned that this was the old trolley stop for the line that ran to Litchfield and Manchester.  The trolley stop is the stone bench on the corner, near the old library, and the weather vane atop the bandstand honors it's history.

  1. Cool posting. I never knew that was there!

  2. I've got to say, that's a pretty unusual (an cool) weather vane!
