Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post weekly, usually of weather vanes in the Nutfield, New Hampshire area, but sometimes they can be from anywhere. Occasionally they are elsewhere in New England, or very historical weather vanes from anywhere else. Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, but all are interesting. Often, my readers tip me off to some very unique and unusual weathervanes, too! Today's weathervane was photographed on the New Hampshire seacoast.
Do you know the location of weather vane #119? Scroll down to the bottom to see the answer!
Today's weather vane was designed by Walter Liff, and is located on top of the New Castle, New Hampshire public library. Walter Liff also designed the weather vane in the Great Common Park, next door, that you can see HERE. It is a huge (six feet!) cod fish, gilded in 23 carat gold. New Castle is a community on an island in Portsmouth Harbor, and this cod fish is a great symbol of the fishing history of this town.
