Default Postcard Typo's

A somewhat familiar old postcard from the area with a few typo's/mistakes Nothing earth shattering here but found it interesting that it made it into circulation. Without the defeat of the British in the revolutionary war this card could have been more correct, for a while New Hampshire technically began a few hundred feet north of the bridge at Endicott Rock. Note the old trolley going over the bridge

Is that a 6 MPH sign attached to the bridge a little right of center near the top.

Default Building?

There are some similar postcards on Weirsbeach.com, mostly more recent, but I don't see any that had that large building in them. Any idea what it is/was?

I know it sounds crazy but I believe our part of NH was part of Mass. many years ago. Can this post card be that old?

NEW HAMPSHIRE COLONY


New Hampshire was originally part of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The area was first settled in 1623, at Odiomnes Point, near the current location of Portsmouth. The settlers of New Hampshire were an independent group and did not like being governed from Massachusetts. In 1679, New Hampshire was separated and became a Royal Province, with John Cutt as governor. They were reunited in 1686 and redivided in 1691. New Hampshire continued to be separated until 1698, when it came under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts, once more, with Joseph Dudley as Governor. In 1741, New Hampshire returned to its royal provincial status with a governor of its own. Benning Wentworth, was its governor from 1741 to 1766.

Default bridge 1899

The bridge was built in 1899, long after Massachusetts and NH borders were determined, so no chance the postcard was correct.

Question Common Error?

Somewhere else on this forum, I placed a different Wolfeboro Town Hall photo (not corrected from Mass., as here).
