The Rocky Neck Art Colony Is Looking for Old Rocky Neck Photos

Judy Robinson-Cox writes

Looking for Old Rocky Neck Photos
The Rocky Neck Art Colony is looking for old photographs of Rocky Neck to include in a History of Rocky Neck exhibit in the Rocky Neck Gallery.  If you have any photos taken before 1990 that we could borrow, scan and return to you, please contact Judy Robinson-Cox (judy@robinson-cox.com). Specifically, we are looking for photos that show the character of Rocky Neck including the artists that worked here and their studios and galleries. The older the better. If we use the photo, we will display it with a short description and credit line for the photographer.

Judy may I suggest you head down to the Cape Ann Historical Museum and see our boy FOB Fred Buck in the archive room?  If anyone hasn’t figured it out by now, they have an incredible amount of old photos and a staff of caring people who would like nothing more than help you access it.
