Hood's Milk, Concord, New Hampshire - Weathervane Wednesday

 This weathervane was photographed over the Hood's Milk office at 330 North State Street, Concord, New Hampshire. 

The H. P. Hood Milk Company began as a delivery service in Charlestown, Massachusetts.  The owner, Harvey Perley Hood, expanded his business by buying a dairy farm in Derry, New Hampshire in 1856 and delivering the milk to the Boston area by train.  Hood's milk grew throughout New England and nation wide.  For years the main plant in Charlestown, Massachusetts was seen by millions of people just off the overhead I-93 expressway just outside of Boston, but it is now closed.  

This two dimensional dairy cow weathervane is very appropriate for this building, don't you think?  

For the truly curious:
