Millie in the Millyard, Manchester, New Hampshire

I've blogged about this beloved state before (you can find the link below) and this artwork is even more beloved today.  The original name of the statue is "The Mill Girl", but she is affectionately known as "Millie" here in Manchester, New Hampshire.  Millie is located on North Commercial Street, next to the Stark Mill on a flight of stairs that has become quite hazardous and broken.  The city has not yet roped off the area, but as you can see in the photos below, the staircase is quite dangerous.  

I decided to photograph the area around Millie because the city of Manchester is going to soon revamp this and change the layout of the pedestrian way.  They want to include a ramp, signage, and a new location for Millie.  The city was seeking ideas and feedback from the public last year. 

When the construction begins, I will document this, and the final results, too! 

The restoration project has begun!

For the truly curious:
