An arched hall

Description

A view of the entrance hall and stairs in the Georgian-style Jaffrey House on Daniel Street in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. A model in period costume descends the stairs, which are covered by a runner. Two leather fire buckets hang from the arched wall. The right fire bucket bears "no. 2" and "1827." The walls are decorated with wainscoting and wallpaper. George Jaffrey, a New Hampshire Supreme Court justice, built the house on Daniel Street in 1730. The Museum of Fine Arts purchased the house in 1919 and removed two interiors and a cupboard. The house was destroyed in 1920.
