Description 99 Russell Street from backyard of a Market Street residence, Portsmouth, NH.

During the 1940s and 50s, the Bisognani family lived at 99 Russell. The city directory listed the house as vacant during the 1960s. During the Vaughan Street Urban Renewal Project, this building was demolished while Russell Street was reconfigured. The land remained vacant for nearly 15 years until the mid-1980s when the Sheraton Hotel was built.

This is one of 327 images attributed to Thomas Minichiello who documented the destruction of the North End from c. 1968-1972. The neighborhood was demolished as part of the Vaughan Street Urban Renewal Project, c. 1968.
