A couple of days ago Mary Ann Anderson wrote in asking for help finding photos of her grandfather’s fishing boat, The Rosemarie-
I’m looking for some old photos of my grandfather’s fishing boat the Rosemarie. I was wondering if you could put something on the Good Morning Gloucester website to see if anyone has some. The boat sank years ago. My brother (Tom Scola) and I don’t have. My father, Joe Scola, is now 88 and would love to see some. Please let me know if this is something that can be done. Thank you.
Fred Buck who works in the photo department at the Cape Ann Museum dug around and came through for us!
