Weathervane Wednesday ~ A three masted sailing ship!

Every Wednesday for almost two years I have been posting photographs of weathervanes located in or near the Nutfield area (the former name for the land where Londonderry, Derry and Windham, New Hampshire are now located). Most are historically interesting or just whimsical and fun weathervanes.   Sometimes I photograph other weather vanes as I travel around New England, especially if they are historic or near historic sites.  Today's weather vane can be seen in Massachusetts. Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weather vane #93? Scroll down to see the answer....





Today's weather vane can be found in historic Plymouth, Massachusetts, on the corner of Water Street and Union Street.  I don't know the name of the business located here, but the weather vane sits atop an impressive copper cupola, near the waterfront.  This is a three masted ship, that appears to have been painted at one time.  The hull appears to have remnants of black paint and gold gilding.  The entire ship is fully three dimensional with full rigging and one sail in the aft.

    That looks like a weathervane made by my father Ike Bailey formerly of Kingston and Duxbury. It is a model of the Clippership "Flying Cloud". The cardinal points do not look the ones he used.
