For this From the Rooftops Thursday, we return to the top of Abbot Hall Tower where I was fortunate to find myself on an early December morning. I had climbed the scaffolding surrounding Abbot Hall to help document the work being done to restore the tower to its full beauty and function. However, once up at the top of the scaffolding, I couldn’t help but capture views of Marblehead from this incredible vantage point.
In this image, I was facing roughly southwest from where I could angle the camera to include much of the Town of Marblehead and, in the distance, the Boston skyline. The light was perfect and the lack of foliage on the trees allowed for unobstructed views of the many historical houses and buildings below.
