Item Information

Title:
Fitchburg Depot Building as decorated for the New Hampshire Festival
Description:
Print showing the Fitchburg Depot Building on Causeway Street decorated with flags and streamers for the Second Festival of the Sons of New Hampshire on November 2, 1853. There are pedestrians walking around the building and carriages driving by. "The decorations, as will be at once observed by the engraving, were of the most pleasant and agreeable character, and were got up by Mr. William Beals, of this city, who is an artist fully competent for this business. The view given here is an exterior view of the Fitchburg Depot, at the terminus of the road in this city, in which the festival and banquet was holden. It has never been our lot to see a finer body of men assembled together, to represent any interest or locality, than was the case in this instance."
