Crude Cow Card

Going along with the Sepia Saturday theme I dug out this old postcard, not in very good shape, with cows looking very curiously at the photographer.

Old Town Hill is not in Newburyport as the card states, it is in Newbury. Newburyport was once part of Newbury and broke away in 1764. It came to be better known than its parent due to shipping and shipbuilding industry on the banks of the Merrimack River. I suspect the photographer just developed many photos from the Newburyport area and tagged them all "Newburyport."

There are fine views of Plum Island and the ocean from the top. One can still find curious cows on Old Town Hill.

Old Town Hill, postcard, Newbury, Massachusetts, cows, curious
