Italian Donuts & Cappuccino with Gloucester Historian Ronald H. Gilson

PrintIMG_3410This morning our dear family friend and Gloucester Historian Ronald H. Gilson stopped by for a visit with a personally signed copy of his book “An Island no More” and a copy of a new released book he was involved in supplying his knowledge about World War II  and  Gloucester’s fishing fleet for the book  “Battle Stars for the “Cactus Navy”” written by David D Bruhn for a history project daughter Amanda is currently researching. While enjoying warm cappuccino and a warm batch of Italian ricotta Donuts, Ron treated us to stories from his youth growing up on Cape Ann’s coastline during World War II “Battle of The Atlantic” and Gloucester working water front.
