Gene Ehlert Asks About Old Bayview Postcard

Hi, Joey,

Reading your terrific website from Lancaster, NH, way up near Canada. Have recently bought a small house in Bay View; have to rent it out for now until we can afford to move down. Soon we hope.

Bought an old postcard on ebay with a picture of Albion’s of Gloucester, located on Rte 127 in Bay View. Specialized in fried clams it says, and accommodated 150 guests.Our house is on Albion Court, a small dead-end road right next to the Brotherhood. Probably not a coincidence. No sign of the eatery these days, but was wondering if you or someone could remember where it was located. Perhaps where the fire station is today?

Thanks and best regards, Gene Ehlert

    If you come down the hill in Bayview just past the fire station, on your right hand side past Quarry Street is a large lot with grass, trees, some granite, etc. That is the location of the former restaurant. It has been gone for quite some time. I’m 37, and cannot recall ever seeing a building there. I grew up in Annisquam, currently reside in Lanesville.

    Hi Gene, welcome to our Canadian neighbors. I agree with Nate about the restaurant. I heard it was on Colburn in the field where North Kilby splits off. Also heard that it burned down due to a grease fire, don’t know when.

    The building appears to be the old Highline House across from the Consolidated Lobster Company on Washington Street in Bayview. It was a restaurant, then a cocktail lounge in the late 60′s. I do believe it burned down.

  4. dave says:

    The name was changed when Joe Welch bought it it burned down and was rebuilt by Dave Young, Cal Cook and John Thompson. It burned down again in the late 60′s.
