Everything Old is New Again?

The Londonderry Town Pound
according to a historical marker on this site,
the pound was built in 1730 by David Gilcreast
An excerpt from http://www.londonderrynh.net/ the Londonderry Hometown News website. This one made me think of the time we found a horse in our garden one morning.  We called the LPD and three cruisers showed up, but everyone stood around wondering what to do.  This story is for those who long for the good old days.  I suppose this incident was a much more common experience in the 1700s.

"Town Pound may Make a Comeback

At about 7pm Sunday night May 29th, officer Doyle was out on Old Derry Road for reports of a loose cow near the Manchester Line. Finding a bull on the side of the road grazing and enjoying the long grass, LPD now needed a way to help it get home.

While Londonderry Police were looking for “someone who deals with catching these kinds of animals” a neighbor and officer Coyle were able to round up the animal and secure it in the paddock."
