New Hampshire is the topic of this film from the short travelogue films by Dudley Productions (:10), part of the company's "This Land of Ours" series of educational movies. A part of the New England section of the nation, it is full of history such as the old covered bridges (1:00) and towns and cities older than the nation itself (1:03). One of the historical meeting houses is Meeting House Hill (1:07) and this is the birthplace of Daniel Webster (1:11). He was an American politician and orator. Massive slabs of granite are shown and these are used for many buildings and monuments (1:28). The lumber trade plays a vital role in the state’s economy (1:36). A large portion of the nation's supply of wood and paper products come from Berlin near the Merrimack River (2:02). Also on this river, is the state's industrial metropolis, Manchester (2:34). Machinery churn out textiles (2:45) and these products supply much of the state's wealth. The shoe industry is the leading employer as thousands of workers (3:05) combine to create 20% of the nation’s supply. Concord is the capital and of the four largest cities (3:13). The capital building itself appears at (3:25). The single port is at Portsmouth (3:32) which rests at the mouth of the river Piscataqua. Much fishing is conducted here and the annual catch yeilds more than the state's requirements (3:41). Over 250 public and private education institutions contribute to the education facilities for the youth (4:02). The University of New Hampshire is in Durham (4:12). The oldest of the bunch is Dartmouth in Hanover (4:16). Agriculture is prevalent and the Seacoast regoin exhibits fertile valleys from the Connecticut and Merrimack Rivers (4:41). Maple syrup is a proud product of the state and the seasonal taping of the trees is shown (5:13). Tourist trade is a major contributing industry as tens of thousands of acres and state parks provide a variety of recreation (5:44). A sign for the Aerial Tramway (5:54) is shown at Cannon Mountain. This offers tourists picturesque views of White Mountain National Forest (6:09). The Cog railway pulls riders up Mount Washington (6:35) and this is the highest mountain on the northeastern side of the country. In warm and cold weather, the mountains and lakes offer enjoyable recreation (7:07). A brief synopsis will close out the film and from it's booming industries of shoes and maple syrup to many historical landmarks, New Hampshire is certainly a site to see (7:29).
