Puzzle Showing Upper State Street, Institution for Savings, Jigsaw Puzzle (252, 500, 1000-Piece) by Richard Burke Jones
After researching old maps, photographs, street layouts, historical treatises and the remaining buildings themselves, a crow’s nest vantage point was chosen and the initial drawing in pen and ink was drawn.
The foreground area is upper State Street, Newburyport and it includes (from right to left) the Dalton Club, the Institution for Savings Bank, nineteenth-century residences and the Whitefield Church. On State Street itself there are horse and carriages including the carriage in front of the Institution waiting for the return of its passengers, attentive dogs, mother and baby carriage, the wedding at Whitefield's church with dress attendants, violinist and vocalist, and applauding guests.
The Dalton Club is an historic colonial house at 95 State Street in Newburyport, Massachusetts. The house was built in 1746 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. Next to the Dalton Club is the Institution for Savings - the third bank in the United States to be incorporated on January 31, 1820. (The first was in Boston, the second in Salem, Massachusetts.) The bank moved to its present location in 1871.
Rufus Sargent (1812-1886), a prominent local architect, designed the Italianate-style building. Tall, rounded-arch windows, an elevated entry door of black walnut, giant brownstone pillars, a copper balustrade and cornices, and detailing on the front façade decorate the brownstone.
Next to the Institution are two personal residences on the corner of Prospect and State Streets. On the opposite corner is Whitefield Congregational Church which, along with the two residences, are no longer standing.
