Photographer's Note

The second in a series of images from places I have not posted from yet in an attempt to fill out my TE map as much as possible.

Concord New Hampshire is the capital of the state, but otherwise a fairly sleepy town. It is New Hampshire's third largest city, but at only 42,000 people, it is the ninth smallest state capital in the country. Concord was chosen as the state capital early in New Hampshire's history, but as a city, it's boom was in the 19th century as a mill and factory town creating furniture, granite, and the infamous stagecoach that still appears on the city flag.

The building pictured is a map of Concord's past. The Phenix building was built in Concord's heyday, and sits just down the street from the State House, on a road filled with historic buildings and churches. It has served as an office building, a meeting house, and a theater, both for live entertainment and movies. Abraham Lincoln, the famed American President, spoke here in the run-up to his election as President in 1860. Along its side, we can see the outline of another building, since demolished to make way for a pharmacy, and the faded remains of old painted advertisements.

Today, the first floors of the building are taken up by commercial space. At the top, the theater space sits empty, waiting to be refurbished and used once more.
