Weathervane Wednesday ~ Two above a Butcher Shop

It's Weathervane Wednesday!

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 vanes are from a reader, and were photographed in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #289?  Scroll down to find the answer.

Today's weathervanes (both of them!) were photographed by reader June Stearns Butka at the McKinnon's butcher shop in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  This is a local supermarket chain and specialty butcher shop that started in Danvers, Massachusetts in 1946.  The other three locations are Everett, MA and Portsmouth and Salem, NH.

The weathervanes above the market at this location are a fish and a chicken - both appropriate for a food store.  I've seen these same two weather vane figures used above the Shaw's supermarket in Windham, New Hampshire.
