Fred Buck Writes-

i’ve been working with dave cox of main street antiques on his personal collection of gloucester negatives.  among those are three sets of photos of gloucester fishing boats taken in the 1940s:  immaculate conception, launch from montgomery boat yard on ferry st in 1946.; st. christopher, launch from reed brothers in boothbay harbor maine in 1944; and the christening of another boat at fort wharf (?) around the same time.
we need some help from gmg. HELP!  if anyone recognizes the folks on deck or the boat or the location, let us know.  prize is an 8×10 glossy of your favorite shot.
