Fourth of July celebration, Walpole, N.H.

Description

A crowd of people celebrate July Fourth on the Common of Walpole, New Hampshire in 1874. They seem to be crowding around some person or activity. Some participants watch from horse-drawn carriages. The front façade of the First Congregational Church of Walpole at 15 Washington Street, built in 1833, can be partially seen across the street. The picture appears to have been taken from above the scene, perhaps from the St. Joseph Mission Church which is located across the common on Elm Street.
