Mary Tucker Submits East Main Street Photos from 1905


Good morning Kim ~ these photos came from a publication I have titled “Photographic History of Gloucester” published in 1976 by Cape Ann Bank and Trust.  Notice the street car tracks ~ next photo you will be able to see the street car.  Last night, Joey’s challenge reminded me of these photos which prompted my guess.

That’s my corner, Plum Street! Wonderful fun to see. Thanks for submitting Mary!

    Please note the flake yard on the lower left on the photo. Also their smoke house had not been
    added to the property at that time. I would think this photo was taken in the late 1800′s

    • Perhaps so Bob, the date was provided for the first photo not the second. Are you able to see the street car in the second photo? I don’t know if that helps with the dating of the photo. Thanks for your information.
