In 1946 there was a bowling alley next to Alexander’s Fish Market, a year where there was enormous groundfish landings of well over 90% more than that are landed today in Gloucester MA and before there was ever a DPA.
But as you know if you listen to the local obstructionists a bowling alley and a Fish Market couldn’t co-exist, it must have been an aberration or a mirage.
Just like The Gloucester House Restaurant and their outdoor dining would never ever work next to a place like Fisherman’s wharf because, you know, like the obstructionists always say- those two uses can’t coexist on the waterfront.
Of course it could never exist at Captain Carlos Restaurant and the Seafood Display Auction on Harbor Loop, it’s all just been a dream silly, those uses are totally incompatible on the waterfront.
Or at Cruiseport where they pump out pogie boats in front of their open air deck and they are grinding steel hulls next door at Roses Marine- NO WAY, NO HOW could those two uses ever co-exist!
Or at our dock where we load stinky bait on lobster boats and are surrounded by houses and recreational marinas- we couldn’t possibly be operating a commercial dock since 1953 here next to places where they tie up pleasure boats- the two uses are completely incompatible. If it were to be there surely would be lawsuits and riots on the streets.
Or just like the property in the top of this photo where it sits today next to Beacon Marine where they do boat work and have living space and web design. Same as it was back then in 1946 before the DPA and same as it is now- MIXED use.
That R.P. Fraser must have been on acid to have imagined a bowling alley on the waterfront in that 1946 painting- that’s just crazy talk.
This painting is in reference to the photo in the Boston Public Library Archives we posted yesterday-
You see the building that says Fish Market? That is the building where the fire was last week that the Gloucester Fire department quickly snuffed out. Look at Jay Albert’s pictures here from the scene His pictures are from the back of the building which is now a wood furniture maker.
Look at the stern of the the big schooner in the middle of the photo. off the stern is The Phyllis A. The oldest gillnetter in Gloucester and undergoing a major restoration project.
Read about and look at pictures of the restoration here in these Phyllis A posts

Took the Cape Ann Harbor Tours, lighthouse tour aboard the King
Eider. It’s a two and a half hour tour that goes around the cape. It
passes six lighthouses and is narrated. The tour is very scenic to say
the least. Everyone had a good time and was friendly. Its a great tour
for visitors as well as locals.
These are a few of the pictures i took.
