These photos taken yesterday are from streetside looking toward the harbor between Lat43 and Fisherman’s Wharf. Below you see photos from 1980 Harbor looking toward these two buildings provided by FOB Frank Ciolino.

Fisherman’s Wharf 1980-
The wood they are using for this part of the Harbor Walk is about a dense a material as I’ve ever handled. the guy pictured here tells me it will outlast all of us. They wax the ends of the wood before installation to seal them. this part is next to Cape Ann Brewing and St peter’s Park
That is some seriously funky power wire action going on at the top of Center St.

Construction Update Of Temple Ahavat Achim September 7,2010
Many Pictures Coming Tomorrow
A little snug around the nuts, but you know what they say- “Safety First!”
Being deathly afraid of heights you might imagine how badly my knees were knocking as I went to the highest peak of the building. I get freaked out standing on top of a desk to change a lightbulb, but knowing that there was a rare opportunity to bring you guys a perspective that you most likely will never have the opportunity to see, I went for it. The arrow points to the spot where I took a ton of pictures at the very top of the Temple Ahavat Achim. This construction is replacing the Temple which was destroyed in a horrible fire a couple of years ago.
Many pictures and video coming soon

Thanks to Marty Daley for reminding me to keep up with the Temple construction updates
Here’s the latest installment of teh construction project taking place Downtown at the site of the formers Gray’s Hardware building. For the slideshow of the progress to date click this text
It looks like the foundation has been poured and now some holes have been dug to pour footings for supports in the middle of the building.
Good to see investment in Downtown Gloucester!
As always you can click any picture and select “all sizes” to see the larger version.
We will be detailing the construction progress on these pages as new stuff happens. GMG brought you pictures and video of the demolition of the former site and now it looks like the footings are poured and it’s time for the foundation.
The bar is hugggggggge. It’s starting to really take shape. Luis told me that the bar will seat 18.
I dig the warm colors they are using. It will be a welcoming dining experience in the dead of winter when everything is cold and gray.
The site formerly known as Jazzy Joe’s.
If it isn’t real slate, they sure fooled me, it looks great regardless.
Some very nice touches compared to the old building.
Two thumbs up.
They sure did a nice job with the building.
