Gull Cove, Rockport, circa 1930

From the top of Granite Pier, we see a lot of going on at Gull Cove. Granite cobblestones, probably from nearby Flat Ledge Quarry, are ready to be loaded onto barges or schooners. Small gauge railroad cars sit on the other side of the cove, ready to haul granite from the quarry on the other side of the Keystone Bridge. Granite Street passes over the bridge, and past the Rockport Granite Company building, which is built with granite, of course!
