Peter from Peterborough

I once worked with a woman named Charlotte. In Charlottetown. I used to live in Peterborough, Ontario. Now I work, part of the year, up the hill from Peterborough, New Hampshire. In other words, I have considerable practice saying “Hi there, it’s Peter from Peterborough” on the phone.

I’ve written a lot in this space about the people and places of Peterborough, New Hampshire. But I’ve never taken any pictures. Until now.

Oh come on, there’s gazillions of Hilsboroughs. Somewhere a name must have gotten corrupted to Nilsborough, just from the sheer indistinguishability of “N” and “H” at more than 20 paces. Look for a hamlet where the people are nearsighted and there’s no optician. There you’ll find your Nilsborough.

I did the Peterboro(ugh) slide show. Those leaves make for purdy debris. Is the Historical Society building formerly a railway station? I also wonder whether the Unitarian church clock is set to Universal Time.
