Mass Views: Fishing schooner and fish market, Gloucester Harbor 1940 aprox Boston Public Library

You see the building that says Fish Market?  That is the building where the fire was last week that the Gloucester Fire department quickly snuffed out.  Look at Jay Albert’s pictures here from the scene  His pictures are from the back of the building which is now a wood furniture maker.

Look at the stern of the the big schooner in the middle of the photo.  off the stern is The Phyllis A.  The oldest gillnetter in Gloucester and undergoing a major restoration project.

Read about and look at pictures of the restoration here in these Phyllis A posts

Classic- Sen Kerry’s Website Shows A Salmon As The State Fish

Steve Garfield points out this serious gaffe on The Senator’s Website-

In the place where it shows the State Fish –The Codfish, they show a picture of a Salmon-

To be fair there are a million people that make mistakes like this on local menus and in local decor in Seafood Restaurants where they serve local fresh caught fish and adorn the places with pictures of tropical fish.  Anyone who knows me knows that this drives me nuts!

Here is one of my rantings on the subject from last year-

I should point out that I found out about the gaffe from Adam Gaffin- The Man Behind Universal Hub.  Boston’s Greatest Blog

Chickity Check it!- GMG featured on Universal Hub

Universal Hub is a must visit daily for me.  Adam Gaffin aggregates what he considers to be the best from Boston area based blogs and throws it all in a pot and the result is Universal Hub.

Yesterday Adam featured this pic from GMG

Check it!

Check it!

Very worthy of a bookmark in my book.  As a matter of a fact I think I’ll add it to my blogroll in the right hand column of the page so you all can check it out (right after your multiple daily visits to GMG that is) :)
