A lot of people don’t realize there is an open courtyard space that runs between the brick and wooden buildings at the Paint Manufactory. (see post card image)
As part of the restoration process, one of the courtyard spaces is currently being cleaned up by Kerr and his crew.
A pretty spectacular space.
With CEO of Ocean Alliance Iain Kerr, Mayor Carolyn Kirk, State Rep. Ann-Margaret Ferrante, State Senator Bruce Tarr, and many Ocean Alliance Volunteers.

I hope you are well, ready to warm up a bit.
I remain concerned that people think that nothing is happening at the Paint Manufactory.
From the attached materials, you can see that that is far from the truth:
Many people are not aware that considerable work has gone on at the Tarr and Wonson Paint manufactory over the winter season. Most of this work has been environmental mitigation (site clean up). We have removed, two concrete block buildings at the entrance to the site that each had 20,000 gallon oil and solvent tanks in them. We have removed asbestos siding from the side of one building and the interior of another, 8 solvent and mixing tanks have been removed from the brick buildings along with the SUV sized oil fired furnace. The most exciting and challenging work has been the removal of lead paint from the exterior of the brick buildings. Scaffolding had to be erected around the buildings and then closed in with tarpaulins that were kept at negative pressure so that no lead paint dust could escape. The attached time lapse video shows the tarpaulins coming down. As you can see from the attached document, the ice blasting has exceeded our expectations, the brickwork looks almost polished.
From Iain Kerr-
We will be showing the movie ‘The Cove’ this weekend in Gloucester.
There will be two screenings of The Cove (to benefit the Ocean Alliance) this weekend at the Cape Ann Community Cinema, Saturday, November 21 and Sunday, November 22, both at 2pm. The Cape Ann Community Cinema is at 21 Main Street, upstairs from Mystery Train. More information is attached.
I will introduce the film and answer questions on the film and if people are interested on the Paint Factory after the showings.
Hope to see you there.
