Weathervane Wednesday ~ Above Two Banks

Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post weekly.  I started out by publishing only weather vanes from the Londonderry area, but now I've been finding interesting weather vanes from all over New England.  Sometimes these weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are very unique.  Often, my readers tip me off to some very special and unusual weather vanes.

Today's weather vanes are from somewhere in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weather vane #312?  Scroll down to see the answer...

Weathervane A:

Weathervane B:

These two weathervanes were photographed while driving the little red convertible through downtown Hampton, New Hampshire.  Both are located on cupolas above banks.  Weathervane A is above the Provident Bank, 31 Lafayette Road (Route 1).  This is just a simple banner weather vane, typically seen on churches or historic, colonial buildings. Weathervane B is a three dimensional eagle, above the TD Bank at 40 High Street.   Eagles are common on civil buildings and banks.  This eagle has a nice patina, and it looks like it is just landing (or just taking off!).

Hampton has a lot of weathervanes.  In one drive through the downtown area I counted about eight weather vanes.  Many of them were featured on Weathervane Wednesday these last four weeks.
