Weathervane Wednesday- At a Major Intersection!

I've been collecting photographs of the many weathervanes in the Nutfield area (Derry and Londonderry, New Hampshire).  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 answer to the challenge.  Try to guess where you may have seen these lovely weathervanes!

Do you know the location of weather vane #14?

Today's weathervane is located on the steeple of the First Baptist Church in Derry, New Hampshire, on the corner of Broadway and Crystal Avenue.  The church was formed in 1880, and the building was built in 1884.  The present clock tower was added in 1887.   This church congregation is well known for their soup kitchen and food pantry mission, which has been a ministry for as long as I can remember.
