Gloucester Gets a Dusting

We only had a dusting of snow today. That's a good thing, because I haven't gotten my shovel or salt/sand bucket out yet. Mother Nature is telling us to get ready. This is Gloucester Harbor about 1930, but I can't place it's exact location. That's not City Hall in the background.

    Maybe Sibley’s wharf on East Main Street?

    I think it may be of or close to the east end of Main Street. The best clues are the building with 4 windows on the top floor, and the steeple behind it. The negative is not sharp because of falling snow, and maybe from temperature extremes during the film development process (incipient reticulation). I’ll bet Photoshop has a filter that can replicate this effect.

    Could be looking at buildings on Parker Street, off of East Main. One building might be the current Pier 7, Enos Marina

    Mother nature has a way of letting your know and your body has it own alarms when you get stiff:-)

    “Coal lay in ledges under the ground since the Flood, until a laborer with pick and windlass brings it to the surface. We may will call it black diamonds. Every basket is power and civilization. For coal is a portable climate.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

    The steeple is the former congregational church on Middle Street which burnt down and was replaced on the same site with the current brick one .So that makes this shot somewhere along Rogers St. about where Fishermen’s Wharf is now.
