I post a series of weather vane photographs every Wednesday. This started with images of weathervanes from the Londonderry, New Hampshire area, but now I've found interesting weather vanes all across New England and across the globe. Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting. Often my readers tip me off to some very unique or unusual weathervanes, too! If you know a great weather vane near you, let me know if you'd like to have it featured on this blog.
Today's weather vane is from a reader, and it was photographed in an original Nutfield town.
Do you know the location of weathervane post #268? Scroll down to find the answer.
Today's weathervane was photographed by June Stearns Butka, a genealogy blogger from Merrimack, New Hampshire. She has helped me find some great weather vanes in the past. This is one from Derry, New Hampshire located atop a cupola above the Derry Animal Hospital on Tsienneto Road. Their website says that the Derry Animal Hospital has been here since 1967, and accredited since 1972.
This is a finely detailed three dimensional horse and buggy. The horses legs and the wheels of the buggy are very delicate. I love the look of the vehicle in motion, with all four of the horse's hooves in the air. It's a very whimsical weathervane, and appropriate for the animal hospital. Thanks, June!
