WALPOLE FROM THE AIR — While living in Walpole, researching the opening chapter of his novel HAWAII, James Michener called Walpole “the quintessential New England Village.”

I took this video 19 September 2013 from the top of Walpole’s Town Hall. Probably my favorite stereo views (seen in my book – AS IT WAS…AND STILL IS – WALPOLE, NEW HAMPSHIRE) were taken from the Town House Observatory in 1874/5. Looking at those images, and the video below, not much has changed except the trees

And, this was fun to see
